Managing Director’s Message

Welcome to Emergent Payments. As the Managing Director for Emergent Payments Africa, I am proud to be leading an organisation that is fulfilling an increasingly important role in the economic development of Africa. With around 66% of the adult population in Africa unbanked, the emerging FinTech industry has a huge opportunity to drive financial inclusion outside of traditional banking systems. Through our commercial and development initiatives, we are making a difference in bridging the digital divide through sustainable solutions through sustainable digital solutions. We believe that providing services to the underserved is not only socially responsible, but also good business. As we look to expand our business to 20 Africa countries, we hope that you will join us on this adventure as a client, beneficiary or partner. Our culture is based on the premise that anything can be done, with the right plan, right people and the right passion no matter what the circumstances are – or to put it as Nelson Mandela once said: “It always seems impossible until it’s done”.

To facilitate and simplify payment transactions in a timely, secured and convenient manner.

Financial Inclusion for all and to be the most preferred payment gateway solution across the world.
