Chipper Day: five years and counting!

Chipper Day: five years and counting! Chipper Day: five years and counting!

This month marks five years since we launched Chipper into the world. From our starting point back in 2018, our mission has always been to provide the most trusted and accessible financial services for people living in Africa and beyond.

We set ourselves a deliberately ambitious target, and as we reflect on five years in action, we are proud to be making important progress to deliver on our mission.

Today we serve more than five million customers, we connect people across 21+ African countries, and we have issued over 600,000 Chipper Cards. This makes our virtual card product the largest in Africa. On top, for 21% of customers, getting a Chipper Card was their first time accessing a payment card. Over the past 12 months, approximately 140,000 people have signed up for our Chipper Stock product. And over 40% of those Chipper customers were buying their first-ever stock.

As we chip away at barriers to banking, we want to thank everyone who has joined us on our journey so far. And we couldn’t do any of this without a dedicated team that shows up each day to solve some of the toughest problems going. To recognize Chipper Day 2023, teammates shared their thoughts on what five years chipping away at barriers to banking means to them. Take a look at their video below, and here’s to the next five!
