Godfried Boakye, CFO, mentioned that the raise had become mission critical as we expand our service offering and African expansion and well within a manageable Loan to value ratio of 9%. This will help augment support from local African Banks the likes of Ecobank, Fidelity Bank and Absa.

Kwabena Appenteng, Transaction Advisor at Verdant Capital, said ‘we are delighted to see the close of this component of the round, and urge local financial institutions and pension funds to find their niche, to enable them to participate alongside international lenders in the future as we work to deepen the African fintech ecosystem’.
