making diversity matter in fintech & payments

African Women in FinTech & Payments (AWFP ) is the sister company and the African chapter for European Women Payments Network (EWPN), a global network for women working in electronic transactions, cards, payments & fintech in Europe, Africa, Asia and Middle East, whose main objective is to bring women together through networking events and workshops.

The workshops and events bring women in payments together for a day or two for payments-focused sessions to learn about issues and trends, network with peers and celebrate women’s achievements from across the payments ecosystem.


AWFP is a community for women by women working in cards, fintech & payments in Africa and Middle East.


African women have been termed as the future of the continent, yet their potential remains untapped.


We are a vibrant, professional and inclusive community pushing for a diverse and inclusive industry.
