MOBILE MONEY IS IMPROVING TANZANIA’S LEVEL OF FINANCIAL INCLUSION

In recent years, mobile money has become a hot-topic in Tanzania, having become one of the key drivers of economic development across the country.

An ever-increasing body of evidence has shown that the benefits associated with mobile money are contributing to the country’s digital transformation and helping it achieve its 2025 development goals.

One way in which mobile money has done this is through improving the country’s level of financial inclusion.

Mobile money has provided both individuals and businesses with an effective and reliable method to save and invest their money, as well as access to a range of other financial services, including digital payments.

MORE IS NEEDED TO ENSURE LONG-TERM GROWTH FOR THE TELECOMS SECTOR

The new year is a time when people often reflect on the last twelve months, assessing both successes and shortfalls, and how to make improvements for the next year.

With the start of a new decade however, people are now reflecting on the past ten years, as well as looking forward to what the new decade may bring.

The 2010s undoubtedly brought many changes. One of the starkest of these changes has been the continued rise of technology, primarily mobile technology.

Nowadays, mobile phones and access to mobile technology are relatively commonplace. There are currently over 25 million unique mobile users in Tanzania.

Did you know that in 2010, however, there were as few as 15 million?

TANZANIA’S TELECOMS SECTOR A MODEL IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA BUT MORE CAN BE DONE TO IMPROVE IT

As the festive season ends, we are all more thankful than ever for the technology that connects us to our loved ones.

Whether or not you have been able to travel to visit your family and friends, you will almost certainly have been able to talk to them, or even see them thanks to video calls.

The mobile sector has truly transformed our lives on a day-to-day basis. We are certainly lucky to have access to this technology.

Tanzania’s mobile sector in particular has become a model in sub-Saharan Africa thanks to the growth in mobile phone usage and mobile internet connectivity across the country.

Nonetheless, there is always room for improvement.

A MORE CONSOLIDATED TELECOMS SECTOR WILL ENSURE A CONTINUATION OF STEADY INVESTMENT INTO THE SECTOR

During the past decade, Tanzania’s telecoms sector has witnessed a period of considerable growth, increased investment and rapid technological progress.

In this time, the country’s operators have leveraged recent growth by providing customers with reliable and an innovative service which has transformed Tanzania’s digital landscape.

As such, the sector has also become one of the most dynamic and innovative marketplaces in Sub-Saharan Africa - having become a regional leader in mobile enabled applications in areas including payments, insurance and health.

It is important to reflect on how these changes are having a real and lasting impact on the everyday lives of Tanzanian people. For instance, increased mobile penetration is increasing employment and social development for a wide range of people from individual customers to local businesses as well as governmental organisations.

HOW TO EFFECTIVELY SAVE FOR YOUR RETIREMENT

By Kelvin Mkwawa, Seasoned Banker.

Data shows that, as a society, (Tanzanians) have a spending culture – Bank of Tanzania (BOT) data in 2018 shows that our consumption rate is 62% of GDP – as opposed to a savings one. 

The majority of us (Tanzanians) have poor savings habit which affects our quality of life during our retirement. Most of us have conflicting priorities when it comes to affording our current lifestyle hence affecting our ability to save for our future/retirement. We are not wired to save enough for our retirement other than the mandatory savings (social security deductions) and this has to change.

But how much is enough to save for a comfortable retirement? A rule of thumb is that a retirement income equal to 75% of your final salary just before you retire will allow you to live comfortably in retirement. 

The best financial advice is to always start saving as early as possible. But that is easier said than done as life tends to pass by as we try to build our careers, start and support our families, and strive to overcome life’s challenges as they come. So how can you do that? This week I will share a few tips that will help you to start your retirement savings:
  • Set Clear Goals & Seek Advice – Before you can even think about starting to save for retirement, it is important to get a clear picture of what you want your life to be like after you retire. Thinking about where you want to live, what you will do with your time, and when you will retire will help you have clear goals. Once you have a clear picture of your goals, seek advice from professional financial advisors. A research conducted by one of the largest mutual funds in the United States found that people who hire financial advisors can improve their retirement savings by up to 31% compared to those who are not using financial advisors. This is because a financial advisor will work with you to determine how much you will need at retirement to live the way you want and will help you monitor your progress all the way through.
