In an effort to increase the use of digital payments in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the international payments technology corporation, Visa, has announced plans to create local commercial operations in that nation.

Alfred Kelly, Chairman and CEO of Visa, paid a visit to the company to commemorate the opening of its Kinshasa office and a number of partnerships in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Visa brought together stakeholders from the public and business sectors to examine potential that exist to further build the digital payments ecosystem in the DRC, where it is estimated that just a quarter of the population is a part of the financial ecosystem.
