Mobile financial services

More than 1 in 2 Africans has no access to electricity. The electrification of the continent is a real challenge that we want to address. Orange is already offering a range of Orange Energy solar kits for individuals and professionals in 7 countries. These mobile solutions provide access to electricity for all with a sustainable power supply.


Teaching and vocational training are unquestionably the most strategic digital revolutions for Africa. Digital is the only way to quickly train millions of people, vital for ensuring Africa’s independent and long-lasting development.


Agriculture is a key area in Africa. We advise African farmers thanks to mobile services which enable an increase of their revenues by an average of 10% to 30%.These mobile services provide real innovations for the whole agriculture sector of the continent and are part of the dynamic support of its digital transformation.


Orange partnered with the Ministries of Health of the countries to improve the health through innovative solutions. The "M-Vaccin" project is a prime example of this. The aim is to improve vaccination coverage of regions with the lowest rates by sensibilising the parents and communities.
