The growth is primarily driven by Zambia and the contribution from the acquisition of Kazang Zambia Ltd, which continues to grow.

- SPENN Rwanda: +700%
- SPENN Zambia: +600 %

They are continuously building partnerships with private and governmental entities to include more people in the financial system, and to offer products and services that are affordable for ordinary people and profitable for SPENN,” says Glaso.
During the first half of 2022, SPENN announced that the company is currently working on entries into new markets. Among the new markets is Nigeria.
