Zimbabwean fintech startup Payitup plans to scale its operations and move into new verticals after raising US$13 million in funding from the UK-based Thawer Fund Management.
Launched in 2017, Payitup began life processing payments for DStv, broadband and airtime, but has its eyes on a much larger prize.
“Our goal is to build a more connected financial life for the African people and beyond. Through our mobile and web applications our customers will be able to pay for various goods and services, access loans, investments, insurance and a wide range of financial products,” chief executive officer (CEO) Aretha Gonyora told Disrupt Africa.
