A Nigerian innovator, Faith Adesemowo, has been selected as a finalist among three other innovators for the Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation (APEI) – UK Royal Academy of Engineering.
The winner of the Prize will be selected on 8 July 2021, and you are very welcome to attend the final event (it’s free); registration is online at this link.
Faith Adesemowo developed Social Lender, a digital service that provides immediate access to formal financial services to those with little to no previous access. Social Lender partners with service providers like banks, microfinance institutions, micro-insurance companies and agricultural input companies to offer access to financial services based on Social Reputation Scores.
Adesemowo is the 20th Nigerian innovator to be shortlisted for the Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation since 2015. In 2017, Godwin Benson won the Africa Prize for his Tuteria innovation, an online platform that links students to qualified tutors in their area and within their budget. Users locate the skill they want to develop on a mobile app, set their budget, and wait to be connected to the nearest tutor.
