Financial Inclusion Infographic

With over 75% card penetration amongst adults in South Africa, the ability for a business to accept cards has gone from being a luxury to an absolute necessity.

If you’re a small business owner and you’ve tried to get set up with a card machine, you probably know that it’s not exactly an easy process. There are endless forms to fill in, requirements to meet and costs to bear.

Here at Yoco we decided that this is just not right. We want entrepreneurs to be able to focus on creating their fabulous coffee or handmade vases, not worry about payments and admin – this is why we’ve started our business.

See how far we’ve come and how we’re helping small businesses overcome hurdles, accept card payments and grow.
