Mint CEO Update - Mint Extends its Fintech Platform to Underserved Merchants
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 25, 2019) - The Mint Corporation (TSXV: MIT) (OTCQB: MITJF) is pleased to announce the following letter to its shareholders:
We continue to expand our Mint eco-system and bring to the market mobile led, digital financial products to the underserved segments that we witness.
We are pleased to announce that Mint has extended its fintech platform beyond individual and corporate clients to underserved merchants & small businesses. With that platform extension, we intend to reinvent consumer & merchant experience by offering merchant management services and a payment gateway (both in store and online) in merchant categories which previously have had little or no online presence. We have witnessed a rapid proliferation of mobile led commerce in the UAE and intend to leverage our expertise in transitioning Mint into a pure-play fintech platform. We will bring digital financial inclusion to the underserved merchants on the back of a reliable and secure digital payments eco-system.
With the introduction of VAT in the UAE, there is a huge push by the UAE government for a cashless economy. Currently, approximately 75% of the transactions are via cash. This paradigm is slowly but surely changing in the UAE.
UAE is witnessing a rapid growth in small and medium enterprises (SME's). There are approximately 350,000 SME's in UAE. This sector employs over 70% of the country's population according to Department of Economic Development - Government of Dubai.
We intend to look at specific merchant SME opportunities to offer digital and online capabilities in the UAE, starting with grocery and boutique luxury, supported by a secure and a fully functional payment gateway.
As we continue to evolve and extend our fintech platform, we will update our shareholders on upcoming plans and milestones.
