Aligning with Egypt’s financial inclusion journey, we are making digital payment acceptance economically feasible for many small merchants through low-cost payment acceptance solutions. The Egyptian government has been implementing a robust strategy to accelerate digital transformation objectives. Network is at the forefront of this transformation, aligning with the nation’s 2030 agenda.”
