At Waya, our purpose is to Empower People.
Waya directly addresses the growing demand for frictionless digital payment and banking services targeting African Immigrants within Africa and worldwide. In doing so, we fulfill our mission to provide unlimited financial access and opportunities to those who have been underserved, overlooked, and often exploited by traditional banking systems and financial service providers.
Waya’s holistic solution offers a world-class customer experience, user convenience, and simplified processes which enable seamless transactions within and across borders to the people to whom this matters the most - immigrants and people living and working outside their home countries – by providing them with a better way to store, save, spend, and send money home. We have acquired banking and remittance licenses through key partners that enable us to ride on their licenses to offer checking accounts and money transfer services across the USA.
Our proprietary mobile and web apps provide multiple convenient avenues for users to access our services.
We take an eco-system approach to customer acquisition, with over 140,000 potential users within reach through our current partner ecosystems, mainly composed of professionals from Africa living and working in the USA.
These factors enable the rapid scaling of Waya without many of the usual operating, regulatory, growth, and customer acquisition constraints.
In addition, our proprietary technology, and collaborations with banks and other payment service providers in our settlement corridors, ensure real-time settlements to mobile wallets and banks across sub-Saharan Africa and other parts of the world, reducing the friction, time, and costs that plague the market.
We are here to change the world, one transaction at a time.
