Celse Maregarege

Agent Banking Consultant


Celse is a highly motivated consultant in agent banking. His intervention is valued in different project phases, most notably in the design and implementation phase, as well as in roll out and performance improvement. As a business planner, he has a cross-department merging role, gathering information and distributing modeling outputs across participant disciplines.

Since joining PHB Development in early 2015, Celse (originally from Burundi) has acquired valuable expertise in mobile money and m-banking. He started with the improvement of agent networks as a distribution channel for digital financial services with Urwego Opportunity Bank in Rwanda. Thanks to this first successful mission, he was reconducted to a new mission in Kenya for the implementation of a mobile banking network for Wakenya Pamoja Sacco.

From an Economics & Management educational background, Celse specialized in Finance. He has a Masters degree in Corporate Finance from Louvain School of Management (LSM) with an exchange semester at HEC in Montral. Celse is fluent in French, English and Kirundi/Kinyarwanda (spoken in Burundi and Rwanda).
