enza, the innovative payments technology company liberating African banks from the constraints of legacy technology and operating models, and TerraPay a leading global money movement company, are excited to announce a strategic partnership to transform the payments landscape of Africa. By partnering, the organisations aim to tackle two problems that have inhibited the growth of businesses across Africa, and in doing so, accelerate financial inclusion:

Transformation of the payment acceptance landscape – enza will harness TerraPay’s unrivalled connectivity into over 2.1 billion mobile wallets globally, facilitating the acceptance of these wallets alongside other domestic and international payment brands both online and in-person

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
