2. Simplifying cross-border payments for businesses in Africa - millions of businesses in Africa struggle to make or receive cross-border payments in a timely and cost-effective manner, a problem that will be addressed through leveraging TerraPay’s access to >7.5 billion bank accounts, >2 billion wallets, and over 6 million cards, globally

Commenting on the partnership, enza Executive Director Andrew Key said, “We are thrilled to find an internationally renowned partner in TerraPay. enza is delighted to be able to incorporate TerraPay’s capabilities into our propositions being delivered to many of Africa’s leading banks. We are particularly excited about the role the partnership will play in transforming the experience of businesses across Africa, bringing many of them into the formal financial ecosystem for the first time”.

Ani Sane, Co-founder and Chief Business Office at TerraPay, commented, “The enza leadership’s track record and depth of their relationships across Africa are unparalleled, so combining their market reach and services with our money movement network makes us very optimistic about the future of this partnership. This will be a further step towards enabling true financial inclusion, by empowering transactions that can change lives, irrespective of the size or volume.”
