About us

A global leader

Wari offers a wide range of financial and commercial services accessible from virtually anywhere: payments, domestic and international money transfers, airtime top-ups, transportations, services, marketplaces, bill payments, communications… Our aim is to deliver solutions to people’s exact needs and desires and to connect them wherever they are, through our digital and physical networks.

We are a truly global company, mainly because we were born at the heart of Africa, fully conscious of the needs and growth opportunities existing around the planet.

We are constantly expanding, and we are now physically represented in more than 60 countries.  We make transactions easier in Africa and across the globe, contributing to economic opportunities for all. We are a recognized growth accelerator on our continent.

Our platform offers the best network coverage thanks to more than 150 partnerships established around the world and we combine the largest array of partners on the continent: Banks and financial institutions, public institutions, post offices, national lotteries, gas stations, businesses. We constantly develop new connections, widening the network.

Wari aims to build a reference, to strengthen the collaboration between key actors of the system:  fintech, Telco’s, banks and regulators on a national and continental level, in order to build the pathway to the globalization of services.
