This is a significant win for CR2 as we continue to expand our presence in Ethiopia and build on our already existing relationships within the market there. It’s clear that the Ethiopian market is an extremely dynamic one and we’re pleased to be at the heart of the exciting developments within a truly unique and vibrant market.”

Teferi Mekonnen, CEO of Oromia Bank, said, “This investment in omni-channel digital banking technology will significantly update the bank’s infrastructure and enables a broad range of payment capabilities through digital means. Our banking and payments experience will be fast, modern, easily accessible to all segments within urban and rural communities, and very convenient to use. Our adoption of this technology will significantly contribute to the development of our country’s digital transformation and help bring the unbanked into the banking economy.”
