As Chairman of the British African Business Alliance, I help bring businesses, investors, partners and consultants together to stimulate and accelerate business development between the Diaspora and British companies.
I am keen to see this activity catalyse the role of business in the development of wider prosperity in Africa.
As Chief Executive of the Rainbow Interchange, I am also reaching out to people in businesses across the developing world who recognise the role that Financial Inclusion plays in helping people to make their own way out of poverty.
Our financial inclusion service is designed to be affordable by people earning as little as $1 a day and offers access to lower cost remittances domestically and internationally, banking and microfinance services and savings.
I look forward to discussing this intriguing and fascinating business opportunity that creates opportunities for people, retailers, businesses, employers, banks, microfinances institutions and Central Banks.

I've spent 15 minutes examining ZippCard, and would like to invite you, or someone from the ZippCard team, to speak on the 10th of May at Oxford's Forum for International Development, OxFID.
OxFid is a twice-yearly student-organised conference that introduces students to international development issues, and informs students as to how they can contribute to international development in their later careers. Our forthcoming conference, entitled 'Focus on Africa', will take place on the weekend of the 10th-11th of May, and be attended by 300 students at Oxford's premier conference venue, the Said Business School.Moreover, the conference includes as lead speakers, Dr Goldin, former Vice-President of the World Bank, Richard Dowden, director of the Royal Africa Society and just-confirmed Mr Luis Moreno-Ocampo, Prosecutor to the International Criminal Court. Our other speakers from other organisations include:
Oxford University Department for International Development; The UNICTR; The Blair Development; Commission; WarChild; Oxfam; New Economic Foundation; Save the Children; Christian Aid; Water Aid; African Union; Coalition to Stop Use of Child Soldiers
Part of the conference includes running a programme of seminars, a subsection of which is on Business and Economics in African Development. We have one talk on Structural Adjustment and another on SME cultivation in Africa, and are looking for another speaker to address two consecutive audiences of 30 on an understressed topic in this subsection. OxFID aspires to introduce future policy-makers and other professionals to important and tender issues in international development. Would you be willing to address two consecutive audiences of 30-40 for one hour each on 'The dynamics of remittances and possible solutions'?
We are also able to provide accommodation on Saturday night, a meal in an Oxford college and a wealth of other speakers, including a discussion from the author and critics of Professor John Toye's treatment of structural adjustment. Please feel free to reply with any questions, suggestions, complaints etc that you may have.

I have gone thru site of ur company. It is a great idea to save money of poor thru technology, but why ur company is so slow in implemention. India is a great opportunity for ur product with more than 7 lac villages. One thing really missing is the implementation. With a few hundred machines how this can be fruitful to millions of people. A video presentation of the thought is also missing.Thru this business u will also earn blessings alongwith money.
Thanks for reply. Here concept of franchisee is growing in india. So, u can also go thru this channel, as due to increse in HNI's there are lot of people having surplus money to invest in business.Even due to uncertain equity market and current interest rates of bank deposits below the rate of inflation, people are really waiting for attractive alternative avenues. But , u need to ensure them that they may earn annually more than 20%(which is more attractive than bank fixed deposits) on their investment with a steady growth but without risk. so, there must be clear project backed by some reputed business group/financial institution and must be appraised by renowned audit/legal firm.If u r using yahoo or google messenger, pls give me ur ID, so that we can discuss in detail.
hi david would like to chart serious with you about business. i will also give your e mail adress to my wife. she is working at a microfinance institution here in Tanzania and i think this information will be vital to her
