The partnership marks the first collaboration between a Financial Technology provider and a Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) company in Egypt.

Valu, MENA’s leading universal financial technology powerhouse, announced today its strategic partnership with Proctor & Gamble (P&G) to offer innovative financing solutions for Braun’s grooming products’ consumers in Egypt.

At Valu, we believe in empowering consumers by providing them with flexible financial solutions that meet their needs. Through this collaboration, we are not only making premium grooming products more affordable but also streamlining the purchasing process for our customers. The collaboration with Braun is also a steppingstone for future collaborations with other P&G brands across its categories.”
