The Partnership for Finance in Digital Africa (FiDA) is an initiative led and hosted by Caribou Digital, as part of the Mastercard Foundation Financial Inclusion Program. In this rapidly changing digital world, FiDA collaborates with leading organizations and companies across the digital finance space to inform and produce research on financial inclusion.

To inform their work, FiDA recently published a case study called, “Launching into space: Using satellite imagery in financial services,” which offers insight into the method behind how Apollo Agriculture and Harvesting Inc. integrated earth observation technology into their business models and product offerings. This case study explores the feasibility of FinTechs engaging in data analytics techniques, such as interpreting data points captured by satellite imagery, to leverage smallholder farmers’ creditworthiness to financial service providers.
