Enabling businesses and individuals to make and collect payments as though there were no borders, currencies or constraints

PROBLEM

Businesses and individuals in Africa have many payment collection and disbursement channels, which leads to redundancies, obscurity, and downstream disruptions. For example, micro-financing schemes, which play a key part in financial inclusion, have to absorb huge costs in order to manage all the disbursal and payments channels for their relatively poor clients.

SOLUTION

Enabling the ability to make and receive payments as though there were no borders, no currencies, and no constraints within, into and from Africa. To remove borders Nash digitizes core financial services infrastructure, builds rails where these are non-existent and unifies all existing payment rails. To remove constraints Nash provides targeted financial products (credit, investments, insurance) to individuals & businesses and provides a single view of their financial health.
