Tabby,Tabby, one of MENA’s leading shopping and financial services apps, has raised $58 million from Sequoia Capital India, STV, PayPal Ventures, Mubadala Investment Capital, Arbor Ventures, and Endeavor Catalyst in a Series C round which values the company at $660 million.

The fundraiser will be used to expand Tabby’s product line into next-gen consumer financial services and support the company’s growing operations. This round makes Tabby one of the most valuable startups in MENA and the first in the GCC to receive funding from PayPal Ventures.

Hosam Arab, CEO and Co-Founder of Tabby, said, “With rising interest rates and growing inflation, it has never been more important for people to have access to payment flexibility to stay in control of their finances. Despite downward pressure on fintech valuations, our business continues to sustainably scale as we lead the generational shift towards fair and transparent financial products in MENA.”

The company recently launched with noon, the region’s largest e-commerce marketplace. Last year, Tabby crossed 3 million active shoppers, expanded its operations to Egypt and grew 5x in revenue over the previous year.

GV Ravishankar, MD, Sequoia India, said, “We are excited to see Tabby grow into a leading consumer focused fintech company for the region. Over the next few years, it has the opportunity to offer several innovative products to its consumers to improve access while creating more affordability. The team has done this with continued focus on good credit quality and strong economics.”

Ihsan Jawad, Partner at STV said, “We are pleased to be doubling down on our partnership with Hosam, Daniil and the team on their growth journey across the region.  Backing tabby means tapping into MENA’s $95bn BNPL market opportunity that is just getting started, and being part of the future of financial services across the region.”
