GEM NPC started as a mobile payments platform that rewards Good Deeds. People earn GEMs by participating in social projects. They receive and spend the GEMs straight from their cellphones on airtime, electricity, groceries, data, movie tickets.
With 8,000 users in this closed-loop payment platform, GEM now aims to use the same API’s, tech and procedures to offer financial services to the unbanked population of South Africa.
We have developed innovative technology and IP that enables us to service customers for payments, savings and credits on a fully mobile basis: without ever meeting them in person and without ever receiving a paper document.
