Solving Local Covid-19 Related Issues using Fintech Solutions like MoMo

TADHackZA 2020 Theme

Main Challenge for $1000 #TADHackZA: “Solving Local Covid-19 Related Issues using Fintech Solutions like MoMo”

Sub-Theme: Ayoba Challenge

MicroApps are single purpose and cross-platform apps designed to support a single step in a user’s workflow. In contrast to full-blown mobile apps, MicroApps are lightweight apps within a container that perform one single task — and do so seamlessly, with little friction. MicroApps are self-sufficient and can be independently deployed and tested. They can be deployed dynamically without going through an App Store approval process and downloading/updating apps. Access restrictions are applied to restrict who can access what MicroApps, and what information from the main App users is delivered. From the start, ayoba’s vision has been to provide a localised experience, supported by services that are relevant to local users. While ayoba already provides some of that localised experience, the app platform that we’re launching represents a huge opportunity for local talent to develop applications that reflect local cultures and local values, and that address local challenges, while benefiting the broader ayoba community.

In the last decade, it has been made clear that the thirst for quality gaming in Africa is much larger than most would think. Africa is quickly catching up as talented game developers pop up all over the continent, ready to become part of the international world of gaming.

With Ayoba’s support for games and free data, we are looking for African developers to rise up and produce local games for local tastes.
