The state-owned Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE) has struck a deal with a local software developer for an application that would enable digital payments at fuel stations. Dubbed "Nedaj", the app developed by Eaglelion System Technology Plc over the past year will be able to integrate CBE accounts to allow users to transact payments for petroleum products. The Bank is rolling out a pilot project using over 1,300 vehicles it owns. Incorporated three years ago with 15 million Br in registered capital, Eaglelion has previously developed micro-credit and digital remittance platforms for Dashen Bank and the Bank of Abyssinia. The CBE has registered over 27.4 million accounts on its digital platforms. Its digital network comprises close to 40,000 CBE Birr agents and 68,000 merchants. The Bank operates over 1,800 branches and close to 2,800 ATMs.
