Kenyan e-commerce and fintech company, Copia Global, has announced a five-year partnership with the global payments giant Visa.

This collaboration aims to reshape the financial services and digital commerce landscape, focusing on rural, middle, and low-income consumers in Kenya.

Founded in 2013 by Silicon Valley experts Tracey Turner and Jonathan Lewis, Copia’s business-to-consumer (B2C) platform stands as a practical hub for rural consumers to conveniently order and receive a diverse range of products through digitally-enabled local agents.

The key aspect of this collaboration is the introduction of an innovative digital wallet, seamlessly integrating shopping and financial services within Copia’s app.

Users can not only shop and pay but also save, borrow, and access various financial services, including flexible payment options, “Buy Now Pay Later” credit, “Save Now Buy Later” savings, credit score building, and exclusive loyalty solutions from Visa.
