Driving Digital Inclusion

Mastercard has partnered with Samsung, Airtel and Asante on a Pay-on-Demand platform designed to provide safe, secure and convenient consumer financing via Samsung devices with the embedded Knox security platform, through Airtel Africa’s network. This partnership will facilitate usage-based payments and will build creditworthiness. It will be piloted in Uganda. Meanwhile it is rumored that both Visa and Mastercard have told the South African government that if it goes ahead with plans to force financial services to use only SA servers (the so-called “localisation” rule on data storage and processing) they will both leave SA.
