Direct Pay Online is the leading online payments processor across East and Southern Africa. During 2016 it merged with PayGate Ltd, a leading Southern Africa online payments processor and the enlarged group now has a presence across 8 countries and processing ability across a further 24 countries.
Since 2012, we’ve only invested in Africa and South Asia. Investments outside these regions are from our pre-2012 portfolio.
We have seven priority sectors. However, we continue to invest outside these sectors, largely in the most challenging regions, as new investment supporting any sector helps to underpin the private sector, and create jobs and livelihoods for people.
