African Changemaker

Aziz Yérima

Aziz is a Senegalese fintech entrepreneur on a mission to build the next African PayPal by providing daily services, including payment solutions and an artificial intelligence-based personal assistant.

He is doing this through PayDunya, a Dakar-based Pan-African payments champion he co-founded in 2015.

PayDunya facilitates the sending and receiving of payments on a website or mobile application and the collection and disbursement of bulk payments.
Having missed the turning point of the industrial revolution, Aziz believes Africa mustn’t miss out on the digital one.
