Zeepay provides mobile money services in partnership with the UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and Premium Bank.

The fund is aimed at increasing financial inclusion of more people in the West African country.

About 100,000 people are expected to get the benefits of the grant which aims to improve mobile payments, mobile money services, prepaid cards and bank accounts in the country.

Andrew Takyi-Appiah, managing director of Zeepay, thanked the Swiss government and said that this move aims to develop Ghana in reforming its economy by digitalising financial inclusion of the people.

Zeepay is a wholly Ghanaian owned mobile financial services company that provides integrated mobile payments services with mobile wallets targeting the unbanked and banked population in the country. The objective is to bring the unbanked population into the mainstream financial services by easing their payment methods.
