Moghazy revealed that AMAN’s microfinance operations experienced a 35% growth in 2023, with total financing reaching EGP 4.9 billion through 200 branches, including 40 newly established branches during the year. This was due to the company forging several key partnerships with prominent financial institutions such as the Social Fund, Misr Insurance Company, Agricultural Bank of Egypt, Al Baraka Bank, QNB National Bank, and EG Bank to expand its services. Additionally, Islamic finance completed over 1,700 successful transactions valued at more than EGP 60 million through its 7 branches.

Additionally, we are proud to be activating 'e-wallets' for prominent partners such as Etisalat and CIB within our branches, supporting financial inclusion and Egypt's Vision 2030 for a cashless economy."

For his part, Mohamed Wahby, CEO - Products & Technology AMAN Holding, emphasized the company's commitment to sustainable digital infrastructure development. "We aim to attract more merchants and consumers who mainly rely on cash for their daily transactions, encouraging them to embrace the concept of a cashless economy in line with the country's vision," stated Wahby.

"AMAN’s remarkable 32% growth in electronic payments, surpassing EGP 41 billion in transactions and completing 550 million transactions, underscores our unwavering dedication to delivering cutting-edge financial technology services and ensuring a seamless, secure user experience," declared Wahby, highlighting the company's commitment to excellence. "Furthermore, our financing of over 2,000 electronic payment merchants through nano finance demonstrates our relentless pursuit of integration and synergy across our operations."

Wahby also added that one of AMAN’s key achievements is the AMAN SuperApp, a comprehensive digital platform integrating the company's products & services. It includes electronic payments, instalment services, e-commerce, credit limit application, and financing. The app has garnered over 1.8 million downloads, marking a 180% increase in operations and surpassing half a billion Egyptian pounds in transaction value, a 250% increase from the previous year.

Looking ahead to 2024, AMAN Holding is committed to expanding its market share in Egypt and introducing new products and services.
