Nigeria’s digital payment service bank, 9 Payment Service Bank (9PSB), has echoed the impressive progress demonstrated by the female professionals and entrepreneurs in the fintech sector, and Small and Medium Scale Enterprise (SMEs) at this year’s Digital Pay Expo and Exhibition held in Lagos.

The year’s event analyzed the payment habits of the Millennials and Gen Z, while spotlighting the crucial effects of the group on the payment world to continue to develop solutions that will gain their loyalty and that of the total market.

Speaking at the session, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, 9PSB, Branka Mracajac, emphasized that women are making significant breakthroughs in the fintech sector and in Small and Medium Scale Enterprises in recent years compared to what was obtainable in the past.

She stated further that though women are still contending with the male counterparts for positions, it is evident that many women are assuming key executive positions in the finance and fintech sector, as well as other areas of human endeavour.

She added that the fintech industry is striving to improve the situations occasioned by gender disparity, inclusivity, and financial inclusion to ensure equal growth and opportunities.

She said, “Women are founding many business entities and SMEs, it is important to have the right mindset, work hard and put in more effort to educate yourselves, acquire the right expertise and skills, network and find someone who will inspire you and the opportunities would present themselves.

“We need more prominent professional women leaders in fintech to inspire young girls. We did not have this in my time, but the dynamics have changed. Women should stay focused, connected, and look for opportunities to kick-start their careers.”
