Mamo has announced becoming a principal member of Visa in the UAE and is expanding its partnership with Visa to reshape SME financial services across the MENA region. 

As per the official press release, this milestone for the company happens after signing a five-year partnership agreement with Visa across the MENA region and launching the Corporate Visa Card program earlier in 2023.

Mamo has announced becoming a principal member of Visa in the UAE and is expanding its partnership with Visa to reshape SME financial services across the MENA region.

This partnership empowered Mamo to launch its Mamo Corporate Visa Card earlier in 2023. The Mamo Corporate Visa Card is a key product in Mamo’s spend management suite, enabling its business customers to manage their corporate spending right from within the business payments platform. 

Mamo Business now includes a full suite of financial products that help businesses digitise their financial operations. This includes payment processing, spend management, as well as APIs and integrations. Combined, this suite of products enables businesses to accept payments globally using multiple currencies and payment methods, issue Corporate Visa Cards and centralise expense management, as well as integrate any and all of Mamo’s capabilities into the business’ financial workflows. 

The card-based corporate spend industry in MENA is growing at a CAGR of 15% and is expected to reach USD 120 billion by 2025. The SME sector is the major driver for growth, accounting for over 60% of the market.‌ 

Looking to the future, and in partnership with Visa, Mamo is looking at an expansion into new markets across the MENA region.
