TerraPay closed its Series B equity financing round by raising more than $100 million to help further the payments infrastructure company’s expansion plans across Latin America and the Middle East and North Africa regions.
The funding round was led by IFC and supported by Prime Ventures, Partech Africa, U.S. International Development Finance Corp. and a consortium of other investors.
TerraPay works with companies across a variety of industries including travel, e-commerce, social media and payroll.
The new investment is expected to boost the United Kingdom-based company’s payout network to 150 countries by 2024 while allowing for investment in the marketing and adoption of alternate payment methods for mobile wallets at a larger scale.
