Hasan Kazmi, VP and head of strategic partnerships and ventures for CEMEA at Visa, highlighted the impact of the collaboration: “We believe in empowering underbanked consumers with innovative, secure payment solutions. This partnership not only provides access to the digital economy but also helps consumers thrive in this increasingly digital age.”
