About Be Mobile

Be Mobile is a challenger bank for emerging markets. We offer banking for everyone, including those who are often overlooked by traditional banks: low-income and the rural poor populations.

Be Mobile offers a full range of financial services, including day-to-day transactions, wire transfers and remittances. Our solution is easier, faster and more affordable than those offered by traditional banks, moneylenders, and money transfer operators.

All you need is a smartphone and an internet connection.

Our Mission

In Sub-Saharan Africa, over half the population doesn’t have a bank account. That means hundreds of millions of people are left using costly and risky alternatives.

Our mission is to lift 100 million people out of poverty through financial inclusion.

We give the unbanked access to financial tools to help them safely and easily save, borrow and exchange money.

We see it every day: Financial inclusion does improve lives.

Why Be Mobile

The world of digital technology is advancing at a rapid pace. Rates of mobile-phone ownership and internet access are growing in all parts of the world. The banking industry is being increasingly disrupted by financial technologies and the shift towards digitalization and mobile-money is undeniable. Yet, 1.7 billion adults globally are still unbanked.

There is currently a large disconnect between the availability of technology and the provision of financial services to the unbanked. Be Mobile is here to make those connections and bridge that gap. We’re taking advantage of the growing rates of smartphone ownership and internet access to go where most traditional banks don’t want to go.

Profit with Purpose

Be Mobile is a for-profit-with-purpose company. We deliver our services in a cost-effective way so that we can make a profit while staying true to our long-term mission.

We believe in doing well while doing good.

Leveraging Technology

Be Mobile uses the latest software technology to provide safe and secure digital financial services.

Our services are provided digitally, with a network of local business partners offering payment and cash-in/cash-out services, so that we don’t need physical branches like traditional banking banks.

Before being a challenger bank, we are a technology company. And like the very best tech companies out there, we adapt readily to our customers’ needs and wants.
