Banks and financial service providers value knowing what habits their clients follow. This allows them to tailor products and services. This challenge asks you to build a machine learning model to predict if individuals across Africa and around the world use mobile or internet banking.

This solution will provide insight into people’s financial behavior, which can help financial services providers, including insurance companies and banks, tailor the services they provide their clients.
