Xente, a Ugandan grown online service provider, and payment gateway is in the process of establishing itself in other African markets, Lyn Tukei, a marketing and public relations officer at Xente LTD, confirmed to this website on Monday.
Launched in February 1, 2017, naming Allan Rwakatungu and Francis Nkurunungi, both founders, as chief executive officer and chief operating officer respectively, Xente has since offered wide-ranging products and financial services to its users, including online shopping, purchasing airtime across all networks, paying bills, buying movie and bus tickets among others. The payments are made either by way of mobile money or through the bank via the Visa Mastercard.
