Leveraging on each other’s strengths and capabilities makes it possible to grow. iPay is a big believer in the value of community. It is for this reason that iPay invited its merchants to the 6th Humanity Golf Tournament by The Kenya Red Cross Society, which iPay co-sponsored.
The tournament, held on the 12 of December 2020 at the Nairobi Royal Golf Club, created an amazing opportunity for iPay’s merchants to meet other entrepreneurs. In a brief interview with iPay’s Marketing Coordinator, Ms. Naomi Komu said, “We are pleased to be part of the 6th Humanity Golf Cup Tournament. It is a privilege to give back to the society through the Kenya Red Cross Society, to help alleviate some of the problems and issues that are faced in Kenya’s communities. We are also excited to be able to bring together our merchants to interact and network among themselves.”

One of the invited merchants, Mr. Vincent Milewa, Co-founder, Rafu Books – one of the leading online book sellers in Kenya, mentioned that iPay has been a solid partner in their success story. “With the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a spike in online orders, and this demands that we have a partner that has very good up time to aid in the reconciliation of orders, and iPay comes into play quite a bit” said Vincent. “Whenever we have an issue, iPay solves it quickly and we are very happy with that,” he said.

iPay recently launched a new credit facility product, dubbed ‘iPay Kopesha’, for its existing merchants to help in expansion of their businesses. This is one of the best credit facilities available to iPay’s merchant base as it only attracts as little as 5% interest on each loan. “Any SME at some point goes through financing needs and iPay is the partner that has come through for us to ensure that those bills get paid through this new product,” said Vincent.

As part of the day’s discussions, Naomi Komu said, “With all the amazing products that iPay has to offer SME’s, it is important to note that being a merchant is not just about transacting through iPay, it is about joining a growing community that looks out for each other. iPay takes an interest in your business at a personal level to help you grow,”
