Our partners utilise our hybrid financial infrastructure and deep local knowledge to manage liquidity and send payments to dozens of bank networks, mobile money operators and payments aggregators across Africa.
Meryem Habibi, Chief Revenue Officer for AZA Finance commented “Ghana is a key market for AZA Finance as it is a significant hub for intra-African trade, a mature market with a population of over 31 million and the fifth largest stock exchange in Africa. As an active member of the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), Ghana has set ambitious growth targets for 2029. We believe that cross-border international trade is set to increase and we want to be part of this success story. I am excited to be in Ghana and have been meeting with key stakeholders in the sector to find ways to collaborate and grow the payments ecosystem in Ghana.”
