“We are thrilled to see the growth of the fintech companies in the country.  A prime example of securities and reliable needs is Velox Solutions Corp Limited, which was licensed on September 27, 2022 as a medium-sized company. The central bank is providing support for fintech operations and all the fintech companies that have been licensed by Bank of Uganda are safe in terms of payments systems,” he said.
