Furthermore, with #HandyCash, informal shops can accept customer payment by card. By modernizing, small shops can qualify for banks loans, if desired.
HandyCash validates purchases via account numbers and mobile phone text messages. Winners receive:
– organizational support,
– computing resources, and
– access to partners to expand their product.
