Technology and Digitisation in Supply Chain Financing

We are honoured to be a featured case study in the latest IFC (International Finance Corporation) Handbook on Technology and Digitisation in Supply Chain Financing.

The handbook makes clear that the digital integration of traditional retailers and distributors is a pathway for financial inclusion. The rapid penetration of digital technology and mass-market consumer adoption of digital payment services means there is a growing opportunity to connect retailers to the benefits of digital supply chain management, payments, and banking services more broadly – all by leveraging relationship data.

Our platform enables financial institutions to deploy much-needed capital to last-mile merchants to finance stock via fast moving consumer goods manufacturers and distributors.

About Nomanini

As the pioneering fintech platform for the informal retail ecosystem, Nomanini connects merchants and distributors to each other and global service providers, integrating payments, working capital, and data analytics to unlock the latent potential of Africa’s economy.

Nomanini turns any mobile device into a retail point-of-sale solution for informal merchants that is connected to an interoperable merchant wallet. The interoperable merchant wallet allows merchants to offer a broad range of digital banking (including cash-in/cash-out), mobile, utility and entertainment services to their customers boosting competitiveness. In turn, digital service providers rapidly increase the scale and reach of their offerings. By generating real-time insights based on transaction data, distributors using the platform gain a single view of their merchant network, ensuring inventory is where it is needed most to improve sales. Distributors can also begin to accept payments for goods electronically, eliminating the risk and inefficiency of collecting cash. With data analytics, Nomanini helps extend working capital loans to merchants via distributors allowing them to invest in inventory to grow their businesses. The increased volume of goods and services set against reduced operational friction increases the profits for all platform participants.

Nomanini was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in South Africa.
