About Lesaka

Lesaka is a South African financial technology company focused on serving the underserved. We deliver financial services to consumers (B2C) and merchants (B2B) in Southern Africa through our proprietary banking and payment technologies.

We offer banking, lending and insurance solutions to consumers, and we offer cash management solutions, bill payment technology, value-added services, business funding and card acquiring solutions to formal and informal retail merchants.

We started our journey as Net1 in 1997. Since then, we have grown our systems and capabilities to deliver meaningful fintech-enabled solutions across the consumer and merchant segments. Led by a new leadership team with strong credentials and international experience, and following a comprehensive strategic review, we have entered a new era for the group with a new name introduced in 2022: Lesaka.
