Katlego Maphai: How 4 Friends Started The Fastest Growing Mobile Payments Company In Africa

Katlego Maphai is the dynamic CEO of PoS #FinTech startup Yoco. On Valentine's Day 2017, Katlego spoke about the history and the growth of Yoco, how it spent 2 years in beta while competitors were growing in the market. 

Yoco has grown from 800 to over 6000 merchants in just over a year and they focus on each merchant personally – be it their 10th or their 10 000th – they treat them all equal. Yoco is one of the most exciting companies in Africa. Inspired by Square in the US, this startup is solving the access problem by giving every small business owner the opportunity to accept card payments at an affordable rate.
