Our Pan African Story

Leveraging a firm understanding of the African terrain, Verve emerged to take up the challenge of introducing global possibilities and ensuring all segments of the African market are included and sufficiently connected to international commerce, enabled by affordable card options and digital payments.

We introduced a more affordable payment card scheme option, secured with chip+PIN technology and compatible with the customer's reality. Over a decade later, with a wide issuance and acceptance footprint within and beyond the continent, Verve is still leading the way with payment solutions built for the world by Africans.
