This agreement will allow the region’s financial visionaries to go-to-market quicker and to innovate across a broad range of products and features, including virtual cards, debit, prepaid, credit, BNPL, cryptocurrency, loyalty and more – and to do it securely and reliably,” Amir Wain, the CEO of i2c Inc., commented.

Andrew Torre, the Regional President, CEMEA, at Visa, commented the following: “We see great opportunity to accelerate financial access further and drive innovation in emerging markets, and are proud to be working with leading partners who bring deep market understanding and fintech expertise. We are looking forward to working closely with i2c to accelerate the speed with which fintechs across the Middle East & North Africa region can create innovative payment solutions, built on the foundation of the Visa network.”
