Revolutionizing Pilgrimage with Cashless Convenience

“This project marks a pioneering venture launched from Pakistan, aimed at not only assisting pilgrims but also enhancing financial inclusion in alignment with the national financial inclusion strategy. With the fifth largest population globally and a predominantly Gen Z demographic, Pakistan is on a trajectory towards digitization. Initiatives like this are greatly endorsed by the government,” said Mr. Rizwan Saeed Sheikh.
