TradeTech innovator, Ovamba
This new partnership gives Singularity the rights to sell Ovamba’s digital solutions to banks, microfinance institutions, and other alternative providers of trade finance to small and medium enterprises in Egypt.
Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Singularity, Mohamed Taysir, said, “With this partnership, we at Singularity have been able to expand our financial eco-system offering; by adding a set of bank-grade products that are tailored for our part of the world. Even more so we are empowered to start offering this tool to other Banks and MFIs to start rolling out their own platforms; this allows for a true disruption in how we as a country can reach financial inclusion.”
He added, “Singularity’s ability to contribute to such an important national directive is enhanced by our partnership with Ovamba which will allow for even more disruption on the Pan-African level.”
Co-Founder and President of Ovamba, Viola Llewellyn, said, “We are excited about this partnership. Ovamba has invested significantly in BankPartner™, Pamoja™, and Jasmeera™. Embedding Islamic finance elements into our technologies and business systems has proven to be very effective at de-risking small business finance. Egypt is an important market, and Singularity are well-positioned to pioneer in an era of business growth for small businesses and digital engagement for Financial Institutions.”
Both Ovamba and Singularity, in responding to the near future outlook, said that they expected to be “fully engaging banks and serving businesses in quarter one of 2021.”
