About FinTech4U

The FinTech4U Accelerator Programme is a 3-month accelerator programme. The programme is designed for entrepreneurs who have recently started a fintech or digital financial services business that has the potential to grow throughout Zambia and the regional market.

FinTech4U Background

The United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) aims to support the growth of the digital economy and increase access to financial services for all Zambians, as a way to improve livelihoods.

BongoHive seeks to catalyse the growth of Zambian entrepreneurship, innovation and technology through support programmes, workshops and events.

UNCDF and BongoHive partnered on a business accelerator programme, FinTech4U, that aims to address some of these challenges by working with 10 Zambian FinTechs that offer innovative and effective digital financial products and services to all Zambians, especially those that are traditionally underserved or “left behind.”


Both UNCDF and BongoHive believe that by addressing these and other challenges, these FinTechs, SMEs and other stakeholders in the ecosystem will contribute to a stronger infrastructure to support the digital economy and thus improve the livelihoods and opportunities for Zambians.
