Chipper Cash

Led by Ugandan and Ghanian co-founders Ham Serunjogi and Maijid Moujaled, Chipper Cash exists to unlock global opportunities and connect Africa, one transaction at a time. 

In 2018, Chipper Cash revolutionized money transfers in Africa with the introduction of fee-free transfers for personal payments—providing a frictionless way to send and receive money cross-border—immediately offering financial inclusivity to millions. Since then, Chipper Cash has increased its product suite, introducing services across personal investments and digital business transactions, and expanded its reach into the UK and US. 

One of the most exciting developments is the launch of the Chipper Card. Available in both NGN/USD currencies, having access solves critical problems accessing card-products that are faced by many Nigerians, and opens up opportunities for payment across a wide range of local and international merchants. 

The Chipper USD Card has a monthly max of $5,000, a significant upgrade from most other bank cards, many of which cap monthly spending at just $50. On top, customers using the Chipper Card gain 5% cashback on every transaction made using the platform. 

Today, more than five million people use Chipper Cash to move money to where it is needed most. And Chipper Cash remains focused on its mission to unlock barriers to banking in Africa.
