Ukheshe offers free transactions for grant disbursements during Covid-19

Not only do we offer a touchless payment facility, we also address key challenges such as a simple and easy to use system, that is accessible and includes an effective cash-out mechanism. While, importantly, the platform is also extremely safe and secure.”
