Nairobi-based fintech platform, Lipa Later Group, has successfully secured a KES 500 million private debt issuance, solidifying its commitment to providing innovative financing solutions. The funding, facilitated by Rubicon Landing and KN Law, is directed towards empowering African businesses and fostering financial inclusion in the e-commerce sector.

In alignment with its vision to revolutionize commerce across Africa, Lipa Later Group has invested KES 250 million in rebranding Sky.Garden.
