Here’s How Trustworthy African Companies Can Get Seen By Global Investors With Mansa

by Okhiaofe Ivharue



To many, Africa is associated with poverty, war, corruption, and diseases. There is the widespread misconception that if it is African then it must be risky. Even worse, most global investors generally see African companies as ‘touch-and-go’ hence unworthy of investment.

These wrong perceptions have lasted for centuries and are taking their toll on the African economy. Although Africa is now a very different continent, the world has not fully acknowledged this.

Thankfully, the advancement of technology has opened new opportunities for investors and businesses across the globe to see Africa and its entities for who they really are. These new technologies have also given rise to due diligence platforms that can change the African ‘risk’ narrative and help trustworthy African companies broadcast their credibility.


Let’s introduce you to Mansa, Africa’s leading due diligence data platform.



What is Mansa?



Mansa is a data repository that serves as that authoritative source of information required for the conduct of due diligence on any African company. MANSA aggregates a portfolio of verified information on indigenous companies throughout the continent and advertises it via a simple, reliable platform accessible to global organizations whenever they need to verify the credibility of any African company registered on the platform.

The Mansa Due Diligence platform is owned by Afreximbank, built to serve as an online future-proofing tool to help African businesses get discovered and assessed by global investors. Think of Mansa as a reliable-business discovery marketplace for Africa.

Who is Afreximbank?




African Export-Import Bank (AFREXIMBANK) is a pan-African trade finance institution established by the African governments and investors to expand trade between Africa and the rest of the world. Its primary role will be financing trade within Africa, particularly the purchase of supplies by its members for export production or to serve their customers who are also based in Africa.


Mansa by Afreximbank is useful for investors, stakeholders, and anyone who needs reliable information on any company in Africa for the purpose of due diligence. The need for a platform like this stemmed from a lack of a single, referenceable repository of primary CDD/ KYC data of companies in Africa, and the increasing cost of due diligence checks on African companies for global brought on by this lack.
