We provide governments and other market participants with advisory services to drive public policy through the creation of an effective and enabling ecosystem.
We bring together players in the value chain — issuers, acquirers, agent networks, NGOs, merchants,mobile network operators and processors — and, when combined with our technology assets,we help deliver comprehensive, efficient, scalable and sustainable programmes that meets the needs of governments.
We work with governments to develop use cases for products — from sending and receiving money domestically and across borders to paying bills automatically and getting cash at ATMs.
We educate citizens who have used cash for generations to understand how electronic payments can benefit them.
