saySquare (Tegucigalpa, Honduras): saySquare’s payments platform allows small businesses to accept money via SMS.

Sales are lost for most small businesses because they can only accept cash, which is not always safe in these regions. Smart devices and hardware solutions simply do not work in these countries where most of the population uses dumbphones. saySquare is solving this with its simple to use and cross-platform payments solution.
