Mozambican fintech startup, Roscas, has raised undiclosed funding from Renew Capital to introduce digital solutions that empower individuals and communities across the country.

Roscas digitizes traditional savings groups by integrating digital tools and financial products tailored to sub-Saharan Africa’s informal sector’s needs where an estimated 85% of individuals are engaged in. The demand for accessible financial security products like insurance and pensions has reached critical levels. Roscas bridges this gap, empowering individuals historically excluded from formal financial systems to access welfare products, such as insurance, capitalized savings and loans.

“At Roscas we are fueled by our vision to dismantle barriers not only to financial but also to economic inclusion, by equipping underserved communities with tools to shape their financial destinies,” said José Samo Gudo, CEO and co-founder at Roscas. “The investment from Renew Capital Angels marks an exciting milestone in our journey, propelling us toward our vision of nurturing economic resilience and empowerment in Mozambique and sub-Saharan Africa.”

We are delighted to support the team in achieving their goal, enhancing their services, and broadening their impact,” says Licinio Chissano, investment and project manager at Renew Capital.
