Yoco is an African technology company that builds tools and services to help small businesses get paid, run their business better, and grow. We believe that by opening up more possibilities for entrepreneurs to be successful, we can help create more jobs, enable people to thrive and help to drive our economy forward.
For years we’d seen how hard it was for entrepreneurs to get access to card payment services to help grow their businesses. Our belief was that running a small business was hard. Getting paid didn’t have to be.
There was an opportunity to make life easier for the small business owner, so we founded Yoco to create an alternative. Today, our payments hardware and software powers tens of thousands of small businesses in South Africa, giving you an easily accessible and simple to use platform to help you start, run and grow your business, whether on a street corner or in a fancy mall.
Economic inclusion and equality of opportunity are the cornerstones of our vision, along with an incredibly strong belief in our mission to help entrepreneurs succeed. We’ll always support the people who have the guts to give it a go, so we continue to innovate and iterate with invaluable insights from our small business community.
