About Us

Africa lacks a connected financial infrastructure, posing a significant hurdle for Africans and the African Diaspora to bank, transfer funds, and make payments in a safe, efficient, and cost-effective manner.

AFi is a connected financial platform for the 1+ billion Africans and African Diaspora. Users can create AFi prepaid debit cards on their mobile devices and load their AFi cards with funds from bank accounts or mobile money accounts. The AFi cards can be used locally and internationally to send and receive funds via card-to-card transfer in real time, and pay merchants and service providers with an in-built payments system.

The creator of AFi, Evita Grant, is a Ghanaian native and an alumna of MIT and Harvard University, who envisions AFi to become a global financial networking system for all, regardless of income status.
