The World revolves around money and the future is fintech. As a developing Continent, Africa is the last to receive the attention and boom of the fintech fever. It is the most fertile ground for fintech because it has poor banking infrastructure and a huge number of under-services communities. And with over 60% of its population owning smartphones.
There is no one better to drive the fintech surge and bring the perfect fit for Africa's solution than those who have grown under such conditions. Those who have felt the punches of inadequacies of the system, economic parity and absence of resources and infrastructure. As builders by default, women are better positioned to take their rightful role as bearers of dreams and nurturers of growth.
WIPFIN therefore, by intent and design, is a Women owned FINTECH startup that currently operates from South Africa. We have plans to expand to the entire African Continent. The birth of WIPFIN is a direct result of the cries from Africa for a better financial ecosystem that is inclusive, interactive and scalable. WIPFIN provides more than that, we bring customisable solutions that talk to the masses.
We plan to bring innovation that will improve the lives of people in the most marginalized areas. Our flagship platform feature is an internationally patented 2D Transact payment gateway that promotes cardless and cashless ecosystem. It allows customers to transact globally and across all platforms without the need for a bank card. This feature allows us to pioneer the future of cardless payments in Africa.
