The story so far ...

Pesawise traces its origins back to 2015 when the concept took shape during one of the founder's experiences in the UK. Recognizing a notable absence of efficient payment solutions for businesses and individuals in Kenya and Africa, the founders observed the emerging trends of neobanking and modern payment platforms gaining momentum in Europe and the UK. Drawing from their expertise in constructing high-volume, low-latency transactional systems, the idea for Pesawise was conceived with a clear mission: to revolutionize the payment landscape in Kenya. The primary goal was to make payments instantaneous, cost-effective, and inclusive, addressing a critical need in the region.

Since its inception, Pesawise has dynamically evolved, with the initial vision expanding into a growing suite of offerings. The founders' commitment to innovation and addressing the unique challenges of the Kenyan market has led to the continuous enhancement of the platform. Today, Pesawise stands as a testament to its founders' dedication to providing comprehensive, user-centric financial solutions that adapt to the evolving needs of businesses and individuals in Kenya. Moreover, Pesawise specializes in cross-border and local payment acceptance and disbursements through a myriad of channels, including cards, mobile money, and bank transfers. This diverse range of payment options further solidifies Pesawise's position as a versatile and accessible financial platform.
