Nael Hailemariam, the CEO of Chapa Financial Technologies Share Co, is determined to build a thriving and connected African economy. With his Master’s degree in Data Science and Information Technology and extensive experience in top companies such as Tencent and Asia Innovations Group, Nael is well-equipped to pursue this ambitious goal.
In an interview with Tantv Reporter Charles at the African Fintech Summit, Nael shared his insights on Chapa’s mission. The company’s primary objective is to connect Ethiopia to the global economy and overcome the difficulties faced by international trade due to payment options. Nael hopes to find partners who share Chapa’s values and goals to create a united Africa where businesses can thrive across borders. “We can actually be able to have a buyer in Cameroon and business in Ethiopia or the same thing you can actually have a seller in Ethiopia and also like a buyer in any other country in the world,” said Nael
He recognizes that Africa has the potential to become a major player in the global economy but is held back by lack of access to finance and other resources. Through Chapa, Nael aims to bridge this gap by providing affordable and accessible financial services to overcome the difficulties faced by international trade due to payment options
With his strong determination and expertise, Nael is set to drive Chapa toward success and make his vision of a thriving African economy a reality. As he said in the interview, “I believe that the African continent has a lot of untapped potentials, and by utilizing technology and innovation, we can unlock this potential and build a connected and thriving economy.
