A bookkeeping and payments solutions company, Dukka Limited has announced plans to equip small business owners with credible payment platforms to drive cashless transactions in the country.

Indeed, Dukka stated that the move is coming on the heels of the Federal Government’s policy to push for a cashless society.

Speaking at the launch of Dukka Point of Sale (POS) terminal in Lagos, the Chief Executive Officer, Dukka Limited, Keturah Ovio, said the mission of the company is to drive financial inclusion amongst Africa’s small businesses by providing them with the easy-to-use digital technology tools that will enable them to grow to become big businesses in the future.

She said the solution is intended to cater to small businesses across Africa, pointing out that Dukka’s POS terminal is designed to enable small business owners to accept all types of cash and digital payments methods such as card and bank transfers in-store and online, record sales, and view business performance reports.

“This innovation is revolutionary at a time in the industry when the Federal Government is pushing its cashless policy. Unsurprisingly, there has been a surge in the number of business owners demanding Dukka’s POS terminals ahead of its launch.

“Founded in March 2021, Dukka is creating an operating system for small businesses to manage their finances better and accept any type of payment from customers across multiple sales channels,” she said.

Dukka’s POS terminals are rich with incredible features such as the ability to sell goods and receive instant payments, update inventory, generate receipts and

invoices, evaluate daily business performance, and pay suppliers via bank transfers all from the POS terminal,” she stressed.
