Banque Misr signed a cooperation protocol with Zoomcar Egypt, according to which the bank will offer integrated e-payment solutions. The protocol was signed by Ihab Dorra, Head of Retail Banking Sector at Banque Misr, and Hany Olama, Vice President & Country Head Egypt at Zoomcar.

“Zoomcar plans to pump investments of $25 million in Egypt. We started our operations in Cairo, before expanding in other provinces and cities to include Alexandria, Sharm al-Sheikh, Hurghada, Daqahliya and Gharbiya in 2022.
