📜  Research storytime!

Joe 👨🏽‍💼 (Businessman in Kenya) contacts Dana 🧑🏻‍🎨  (Artist in the united states)for a commissioned art project for his new coffee shop. Dana works her magic and sends over the fantastic art pieces.
A problem now arises with payment options. Joe can’t find a suitable payment gateway to send funds over to Dana. The popular payment option in Kenya is mobile money - a digital money wallet attached to a mobile phone number, Sending payment over Dana with mobile money proved difficult with several delays, inconsistent currency conversions and third-party applications.
From this scenario, we outline the following problems:
  • Few options for sending international payments to countries that support mobile money.
  • Inconsistent currency conversion.
  • Money getting lost with multiple third-party applications.
We gathered more scenarios from which we outlined more problems:
  • Delay in sending over international payments from local banks.
  • Limited cashout options (crypto, airtime, gift cards).
