Catherine Buhle Anajemba is the current managing director of DafriGroup and the brains behind the Digital Bank of Africa (DBA) project, an efficient payment solution concept that was inspired by the growing dissatisfaction of African digital entrepreneurs who have continued to face unfair restrictions by international money transfer services.
Formerly as Chief Marketing Officer, Catherine was instrumental in securing $5 million startup capital for DafriBank. She was also responsible for overseeing the planning, development, and execution of DafriGroup's marketing, and advertising initiatives. Her unparalleled work ethic, competence, and innovative-thinking soon earned her a well-deserved promotion.
Now the group's managing director, Catherine directs and controls the operations of DafriGroup and its many subsidiaries, giving strategic guidance and direction to the board to achieve the company's set goals and objectives.

Due to her relentlessness and vision, she soon rose to widespread acclaim and achieved elite status as a Forex trader extraordinaire becoming arguably the current Africa's richest forex woman. Finance magazine later included her in its annual list of most influential people under 30.
