Trevor Goott, Director for Africa and India at Unlimit, expressed immense enthusiasm about the company’s African expansion and its entry into the Kenyan market. “It gives me great pleasure to bring on board Kenya as our second African country, following the recent announcement of the awarding of our Nigerian licence,” said Goott. “We are also pleased to add Kenya to our global portfolio for our foreign merchants seeking access to the Kenyan market. The high demand from our international merchants to establish local operations in Kenya has further motivated us to enter the market. Also, given its strategic location in East Africa, Kenya serves as an ideal hub for the expansion of our operations in the region.”
Commenting on the expansion, Unlimit’s CEO, Kirill Evstratov, said: “We have ambitious plans for Kenya and East Africa, and are looking forward to supporting local businesses on their expansion goals.
