How Sumerge Helped Afreximbank Streamline and Enhance African Trade

With the goal of becoming the trade finance bank for Africa, Afreximbank aimed to build MANSA, Africa Customer Due Diligence platform that expedited the compliance process while providing a resource of information for foreign investors. Sumerge partnered with Afreximbank to make it happen.

 

Challenges of Customer Due Diligence

The existing customer due diligence process was a painful one for several reasons.

  • High compliance cost due to extensive manual research
  • Long, unstructured, ungoverned and tedious compliance procedures
  • Absence of compliant know-your-customer (KYC) profiles that resulted in lost opportunities for small African businesses
  • Lack of trade information about African countries in which investors would want to do business
