About Chapa

Payment Processing Platform for Ethiopian Businesses

Behind the Name & Establishment

To connect with the youth on a deeper yet light-spirited humor, it only made sense to come up with vernacular way of saying “Money” - and with that motive, the name Chapa came to life. Established in 2020 and headquartered in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia by a team of home-grown engineers, researchers, and entrepreneurs

Chapa is an Ethiopian Financial Service and Data Engineering Company. The inevitable increase in global trade which has been visibly troubled by inconvenient payment methods served as the strongest initiative behind the establishment of Chapa.
