We’re building a future in which informal retailers in Africa can thrive

Nomanini means ‘anytime’ in Siswati.

We chose this name because it reflects what we do: we use mobile technology to help informal retail merchants offer electronic products and banking services to their communities – anytime. Our merchant wallet connects thousands of these merchants across Africa to distributors and banks.

It’s all part of our plan to help overcome fragmentation, optimise digital distribution, ​​​​​​​and scale Africa’s informal retail ecosystem.

About us

As the pioneering fintech platform for the informal retail ecosystem, Nomanini connects merchants and distributors to each other and global service providers, integrating payments, working capital, and data analytics to unlock the latent potential of Africa’s economy.

We are a South African-based enterprise payments platform provider that has been working with informal retailers across the continent since 2012.

We have Pan-African partnerships enabling thousands of informal merchants to provide distribution and banking services in their local communities.
