Semoa implements WhatsApp Banking at Orabank Guinea

(Togo First) – Semoa, the Pan-African fintech based in Lomé, is implementing Whatsapp Banking in Guinea for the first time, through Orabank. The system opens at the Guinean branch of the Oragroup group, following an agreement signed last March between the startup and the banking network present in 12 countries of the continent.

Orabank Guinea and SEMOA launched the system last month (22 August 2022) in Conakry, under an agreement signed in Lomé on 1 March 2022, as indicated by the banking group.

For Guinean operators it will now be possible to access Orabank’s banking services such as consultation of balances, requests for account statements, wire transfers, mobile transfers from the platform developed by SEMOA. The tool also allows you to run bank loan simulations yourself, without going through an account manager, the startup says.
