For the second year running, Equity Bank has earned the top Visa Acquirer award at the Visa Awards for its contributing to a cashless economy.
Equity Bank has seen a 34 percent growth increase from Kshs. 40.3 billion to Kshs. 54 billion year-over-year. This impressive growth is largely due to its huge and reputable list of customers totaling 14,642 merchants.
Speaking about the award, Polycarp Igathe, the Managing Director, Equity Bank, noted:
“We are elated to receive the award, because it is evidence of our efforts towards the facilitation of cashless transactions, giving customers convenience and frictionless experience across the region by enhancing our card and payments processing services.”
