About Djamo
We are building the neobank for 210 millions people in Subsaharan Africa.

In November 2020, we launched a mobile application in Côte d'Ivoire with a Visa Card for cash deposit, online and offline payments, peer to peer transfers and transfers to other mobile money wallets. Now, we're enabling thousands of users and growing fast.

Our goal is to build seamless and affordable banking solutions to bring millions of people into financial inclusion, where less than 25% of the population is banked.

We’re backed by world-class investors including Y Combinator, Partech, Kima and Norskeen.
