The award recognizes Cellulant for leading the country’s fintech and payment ecosystems. The company, which was founded in Kenya, provides payment processing solutions for businesses through its Tingg platform.

As a result, businesses can allow their customers to make payments using locally relevant payment options.
Top companies that Cellulant serves in Kenya include Naivas, Kenya Airways, Jambojet, Equity Bank, KCB, Bolt, and Kenya power. The company has an office presence in 18 African countries and its platform connects thousands of businesses with 350+ payment options (bank, wallet, and card integrations) across 35 countries. The platform powers payments for 1100+ client businesses, 50+ banks, and 220 million+ consumers on a single inclusive network, allowing for interoperability across Africa.
According to Faith Nkatha Gitonga, the Kenya Country Manager for Cellulant, the company has seen a significant shift in the use of digital payments in the last two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Cellulant has demonstrated impressive performance in the payments industry, and we remain dedicated to providing our clients with cutting-edge products and services,” she said.
