The Fintech explosion in East Africa over the last 10 years saw the rapid emergence of digital innovation. Quikk's CEO catalyzed this revolution by building the first-ever Payments API in Africa that unlocked mobile money payments for the web. The boom of the mobile money age began giving life to digital industries like e-commerce, mobile lending, ride-hailing and more. While helping tech companies with integrations, the lack of basic API infrastructure was crystal clear. Quikk decided to solve this problem. To make it fast and easy for developers & tech companies to embed financial services and change lives and livelihoods in Africa.
