RMB - Leader of the pack – once again!
Paymenow continues to break borders, pioneer and grow. We are very proud to announce that we’ve raised a R250 million (USD14 million) debt facility through Rand Merchant Bank (RMB). This is a first-of-its-kind structure for the EWA market in South Africa.
Deon Nobrega, CEO of Paymenow Group, said, “There is tremendous demand for Paymenow’s services in South Africa, which has 25 million active credit customers, of whom more than 10 million are behind on their payments. As such, the population of people looking for access to liquidity is enormous, and our ability to provide this liquidity without compromising financial health is having a remarkable positive impact. Access to funding, such as through the agreement with RMB, is a gratifying acknowledgement of the strength of our model, and a key enabler of our future growth.”
Watch this space!
What are we planning? What is coming in the next few months?
Financial Health Check - Just what the doctor ordered?
Well, financially speaking yes! Paymenow will be adding a new Financial Health Check feature to the platform. This will further safeguard users’ financial wellbeing through earned wage access. This great new feature will assess users’ financial health status to monitor and assist them to not only spend wisely, but also identify what they can do to become financially stronger, more secure, and in essence healthier. We will assist users in managing their spending, budget, and savings, helping them achieve a clean bill of health, financially speaking. This new feature will act as an accessibility safety net, making sure our users stay in control of their financial well-being so that they can go from financial worriers to financial WARRIORS!
For more information on this market-leading new feature, reach out to our team via email, and we’ll happily assist.
New App look and feel!
“By changing nothing, nothing changes …” We’re very excited to let you know that we are currently rebuilding the whole look and feel of Paymenow. Considering the data we’ve collected over the last 3 years, we want to ensure an even smoother user-experience while focusing on continued financial wellness of our users. Watch. This. Space!
