Do you remember 2008?
That was the year that Zimbabwe was at the peak of its hyper-inflation. The country recorded over 500 billion percent inflation rate that left a black hole in the financial system and almost crushed the rest of the economy.
A lot of things have changed for Zimbabwe as the economy has improved significantly. One of the drivers of change is internet penetration. Since 2010, internet penetration in Zimbabwe has been growing steadily and stands at 46% penetration according to Internet World Stats. This growth has directly impacted every facet of the economy of the country.
The biggest impacts of this new digital landscape has resulted in emergence of key players across media, eCommerce, remittance, bill payments and so on. Despite other issues plaguing the country, there is a lot of evidence that Zimbabwe is ripe for eCommerce and digital technology growth given the passage of eCommerce bill by the government and other interesting tech developments.
Hence, as an enabler of payment across Africa, VoguePay is excited about these opportunities and believes it is time to connect businesses in Zimbabwe with Africa and the world at a scale via its innovative payment platform.
