eTranzact Global Limited, a prominent provider of innovative payment technology solutions, has achieved a significant milestone in its multinational expansion by obtaining an operational license from the Central Bank of Uganda (BoU).

This strategic step represents a major achievement for eTranzact Global Limited as it strengthens its position in the East African market and underscores its dedication to fostering financial inclusion and digital advancement in the region.

The acquisition of these licenses enables eTranzact Global Limited to provide its comprehensive and secure range of payment solutions and services, including digital payment platforms, mobile banking solutions, and electronic fund transfers, to businesses and consumers throughout Uganda.

Speaking to the press, Group Chief Executive Officer and Founder of eTranzact Global Limited, Dr. Valentine Obi, stated that this expansion not only underscores eTranzact Global Limited’s rapid growth but also reinforces its mission to empower individuals, businesses, and governments by enabling secure, seamless, and convenient financial transactions that are affordable.

This achievement signifies our commitment to expanding our footprint globally and deepening financial inclusion on the continent. We are confident that our industry-leading payment solutions that are based on cutting-edge technology will empower businesses with the convenience and security they need in today’s digital era,” he said.

On his part, Mr. John Apea, Board member of eTranzact Platform Limited, Uganda, and CEO of eTranzact Ghana Limited stated: “Under the visionary leadership of our Founder, Dr. Valentine Obi, eTranzact Platform Limited is a proud supporter of the government’s ‘Digital Uganda Vision’ which serves as an excellent pathway to promote sustainable development and poverty eradication through digital innovation”.

eTranzact Global Limited, is a multiple award-winning technology firm, which has been actively pursuing an expansion strategy to strengthen its position in the global digital financial infrastructure sector.

In recent years, the company has expanded its footprint across Africa, with new incorporations in countries such as Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and Liberia.

The AfCFTA has created a framework for technology-led companies to scale across the continent in a way that will impact many sectors such as digital infrastructure, logistics, and energy, to name a few.
