Why did we build Portmoni
Our mission is to help entrepreneurs in Africa grow their businesses and change their world and the world sustainably. This is why built Portmoni, to provide them with the tools that can help them succeed.
With the advance of Facebook, Instagram or WhatsApp, business happens more and more at the border with the online world, and having a outstanding online presence is a necessity. But existing solutions are not well adapted to the African context; they are usually expensive, while not addressing the very unique needs that we have here; and they require payment methods most people don’t have access to.
This is how Portmoni was born. Easy to use, designed for the usages we have here, and a fair price: we designed the solution that solves those unique challenges. And we hope you’ll like it.
We believe that the combination of online technologies and new payment channels such as mobile money is unlocking incredible value, and enabling extremely innovative business models in Africa. And we want all entrepreneurs to be part of this adventure.
With more than fifteen years of experience in the development of online platforms, and seven years of experience with mobile money payments, we started Portmoni as a software technology company. We believe a new online revolution has begun. And we’re here to help you be part of it.
