The vision of the group managing director Manish Gupta is to bring the world closer to Sierra Leone & Africa. With this, family members and loved ones abroad can easily take care of home in the smartest possible ways.
The smart digital financial inclusion is to increase the access of financial services to all citizens and transform the economy into a cashless, digitally empowered society.
Providing access to financial services to underserved populations is key in addressing the smart digital financial service. This has become imperative as nearly two-thirds of the world’s 7.5 billion people have a mobile phone, digital financial services (DFS) are becoming a gateway for those who have been historically excluded not only financially but also economically, politically, and socially. Today, FinTech is exploring digital and mobile channels to enhance existing financial services. However, currently, such innovations are being tested primarily in more developed markets. Ezipay is positioned to contribute to the smart digital financial service. Rajesh Balani, CEO of EziPay SL said.
Ezipay SL has partnered with Afrimoney and Orange money to facilitate the flow of inward Remittance in Sierra Leone. The companies have joined hands to enable the inflow of inward remittances in Sierra Leone.
According to “The World Investment Report” for 2019, global Remittance stood at around $500 billion in 2018.
Orange, a multi-service operator and benchmark partner of digital transformation in this region, provides its expertise to support the development of new digital services in Sierra Leone whereas
Afrimoney is the leading voice in telecommunications, making innovation, affordability, and social responsibilities their priority in Sierra Leone.
