FinTech Landscaping in the Arab World

Analysis of the fintech network in the Arab World and its ability to reach financially excluded groups

This slide deck is a supplement to the CGAP Blog, "How Fintechs Could Digitize Store Credit in the Arab World" (December 2019).

This landscaping study was prepared for CGAP with funding provided by MetLife Foundation. It offers a high-level analysis of the Arab World’s fintech ecosystem and the ability of fintechs to reach financially excluded groups, such as women, youth, refugees, small and medium enterprises, and low-income individuals. It includes a list of all fintech solutions identified in the region and deep-dives in six Arab countries (Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, and United Arab Emirates).
