“One major challenge they have had to deal with was the payment processes; hence, some Africans held back from exploring the international market.

“That’s where we come in; we want to improve the interconnectivity of the developing world’s expanding gig economy; one method is to improve how we handle cross-border remittances.

“After a successful launch and operations in Nigeria, we knew our dream had grown beyond the Nigerian market and decided to spread across Africa, starting with Kenya.”
