About Watu

Bridging the gap between people and accessibility to flexible financing.

Our mission is to positively impact lives by supporting millions of Africans to fulfil their dreams of becoming entrepreneurs.

Watu is an Asset FinTech revolutionising mass-market mobility across Africa through financial inclusion and accessibility.

At a median age of 18, Africa is the youngest continent globally and is growing at an unprecedented rate. With an estimated 1.2 billion person growth in the next ten years, Watu is committed to transforming urban mobility and the financial lending landscape. We are continuously helping to shape a brighter and better future by giving people opportunities to build and change the course of their lives. 

By providing access to affordable and flexible financing for two and three-wheelers, we have provided over 370,000 loans across 6 countries and positively impacted the lives of more than 2 million people. We are also actively promoting financial literacy and independence, adoption of digital payments and increased regulatory and safety compliances.

As we expand our footprint across final frontier markets, we have made a conscious decision to be the pioneers of Africa’s movement toward ‘clean and green mobility’. Through the financing of new electric motorbikes, we are leading the way to a cleaner and sustainable continent.
