Gozem to soon start offering digital banking services

(Togo First) - Known for its eponymous transport and delivery app, the Gozem startup recently revealed plans to offer digital banking and lending services.   

In effect, the company wants to enable its users to exchange cash for mobile money, via the Gozem app. "What we are trying to offer is an integrated portfolio solution included in a group of different services,” the startup explained.  

Gozem’s projected banking offer will resemble that of SafeBoda, the Uganda-based two-wheel transport platform. With it, the Lomé-based firm intends to revolutionize technology in Francophone Africa. "Almost 95% of the money and attention concentrates in four, five African countries... Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Egypt," noted Gozem co-founder Raphael Dana, while pointing out that "French-speaking Africa is a bit left out on all the important tractions.”

To win its bet, Gozem plans to leverage its existing network of drivers and sellers which spreads across 13 cities in the French-speaking Africa region. 

Let’s recall that Gozem recently raised CFA3 billion to expand this network further and develop its products.
