An Award for Pakistan at the Financial Innovation Awards 2016 – Easypaisa Does it Again


The Financial Innovation Awards took place in London at Grand Connaught Rooms. The highlight of the show for all the Pakistanis was Easypaisa winning “Most innovative application of technology”.

These are the awards which are held in the recognition of all those companies which have introduced a new successful project in the field of financial and banking services.

It was already a moment of pride when Easypaisa made it to the list of top 5 finalists. Although there were tens of other applicants as well but it was Easypaisa which got shortlisted amongst such intense international competition by a panel of independent judges.

“It is a great honor for Easypaisa to be a globally recognized mobile money service. We deem this award a testament to the trust our customers have in us and the recognition of our efforts in capitalizing technology for positive social change,” said Muhammad Yahya Khan, the person leading the Easypaisa.

There is no denying the domestic recognition Easypaisa has within the Pakistani community but even internationally, this is not the first time that it has been recognized on a renowned platform.

CGAP declared Easypaisa the third biggest mobile money service around the globe in 2013. In Barcelona, Easypaisa went on to even win the best mobile money service award at the GSMA award. It has been won the Wall Street Journal’s Financial Inclusion Challenge last year in 2015.
