Our vision in DFS Africa is to transform the lives of 1.2 billion Africans by providing solutions that guarantees our clients access to finance, support African economies and strengthen local businesses.

We know the challenges businesses and policy makers face in Africa due to fragmentation of markets, lack of infrastructure and access to capital. It is because of these challenges and other limitations peculiar to Africa that DFS Africa in partnership with its technology partners have developed first of its kind products that address the crux of the challenges experienced by businesses and policy makers in Africa.

DFS Africa developed the Africa to The World (A2W) portal in order to connect African businesses to financing opportunities, technology, capacity development, new markets and investments that are available globally. In the same breath the Connecting the Dots Initiative (CDI) platform was developed to introduce transparency of pricing and eliminate inefficiencies in the supply chain of health products and essential medicines in Africa
