Pesapal has announced the opening of a new office in Arusha, Tanzania. The office located at PPF Plaza along Old Moshi road is meant to cater to a growing demand for payment services by businesses in the region.
In addition to offices in Zanzibar and Dar Es Salaam, this new space will support the company’s growth strategy particularly in the hospitality and retail segment. Pesapal Sabi, the point of sale solution launched last year, has seen unprecedented growth in Tanzania necessitating investment in human resource and office space in the emerging economy.

Pesapal CEO Mark Mwongela, said: “For us to cater effectively to the increased demand in Tanzania, we needed to have a permanent presence in the country which is why we have opened additional offices, first in Zanzibar and now in Arusha. We want to show our customers that we are committed to providing quality services and meet them at their point of need.“
