Bank of Kigali Limited, the largest bank in Rwanda has received an e-Payment Gateway from iVeri Payment Technologies, a provider of multi-channel e-payment solutions, making it the first bank in Rwanda to acquire e-Commerce merchant transactions. The iVeri Payment Gateway software will allow merchants in Rwanda to offer e-commerce services through their websites, a service that has yet to fully permeate the Rwandan business scene.

This marks a significant move in providing innovative and convenient financial services to our customers and we remain committed to harnessing the advanced capabilities of technology to improve our service to customers” commented Mr. Naibo.
