Fintech start-up Yoco, which provides point-of-sale solutions to more than 80 000 small and medium businesses in South Africa, is ideally placed to measure the impact of the Covid-19 lockdown on this segment of the economy.
Yoco CEO Katlego Maphai joins TechCentral editor Duncan McLeod for a discussion on the company’s anonymised research, which shows a massive spike in retail activity in the days leading up to the lockdown, followed by a collapse in activity in the days that followed.
Prior to the lockdown announcement, Yoco also conducted research among its merchant base. Maphai takes TechCentral through the results.
