Tilt is a Fintech spinoff of Zoona which was founded and launched in 2009 in Zambia with an innovative micro-franchise model providing individuals with a “business-in-a-box”. They provided agents with branded kiosks, working capital float, a mobile account on the Zoona payment platform, and entrepreneurship training. Agents could then offer a simple domestic money transfer service to unbanked and underserved consumers across the country (including rural areas without banks), earning a commission on each transaction. Zoona assisted profitable agents to expand, allowing them to open new outlets and grow as entrepreneurs.

Zoona was a pioneer in the mobile money industry in Zambia, which expanded rapidly in 2018, bringing multiple mobile wallet and agent solutions. This introduced complexity for consumers and enterprises alike and the Zoona business identified a clear need for an interoperable enterprise solution, to provide enterprises and consumers with choice and control.
