In November 2020, we launched a mobile app in Côte d’Ivoire with a VISA card for cash deposits, online and offline payment, peer-to-peer transfer, and transfer to other mobile money wallets.
Today, we are enabling thousands of users to do this and we are growing rapidly. Our goal is to create transparent and affordable banking solutions to enable millions of people to achieve financial inclusion, where less than 25% of the population is banked.
We are backed by world-class investors including Y Combinator, Partech, Kima, and Norskeen.
