WHY

To become Africa's platform for digital identity.

 

Digital identity is an essential tool in a progressively digital world.

 

Without a digital identity, consumers struggle to access essential digital services.

 

Without a digital identity, businesses struggle to trust and qualify customers.

 

WHAT

ZAKA creates digital identities for people.

 

In doing so, we help companies remotely 

verify and on-board new, trusted and qualified customers.

 

HOW

Access

 

In collaboration with our partners, we will create a digital ID for users at the point of service. This digital ID is user-held and private-by-design.

Connect

 

With their digital ID, consumers can connect directly to services that are relevant to them in the ZAKA Marketplace.

Enrich

 

We will enrich the ZAKA Marketplace with partners offering essential digital services such as insurance, lending and healthcare.

Scale

 

We will replicate ZAKA in other African countries, eventually becoming the continent’s leading platform for digital identity and service aggregation.

Use Case

 

A Rwandan mother of three creates a ZAKA profile for herself and her children. She registers a biometric against her

account and generates a high-assurance 

digital ID credential tied to that biometric.

The next time she needs a loan, she can use her biometric to share her ZAKA profile

with the micro-lender, speed up her

approval and get the loan faster.

Similarly, if she wanted to use a mobile

health service she can connect quickly and easily to the health provider via her ZAKA profile.

She retains control of her data through

ZAKA's consent features and can be the guardian of her children's digital IDs until

they become adults.
