Phnom Penh, August 9, 2019: Wing (Cambodia) Limited Specialised Bank (Wing), Cambodia’s leading mobile banking provider, has announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Agreement with TH CVS Co., Ltd, who serves brand Circle K, a leading and widely recognized global convenience store brand, to provide Wing financial services through the rapidly growing network of Circle K convenience stores across Phnom Penh and Cambodia.
Through this partnership with Circle K, Wing continues to demonstrate its commitment to financial inclusion and to ensuring access to financial services for all Cambodians. Two strong and trusted brands joining forces to complement their respective strengths and expertise, to provide convenient one stop shopping and financial services for their customers, and provide opportunities for entrepreneurs to grow their own businesses.
Recognizing the synergy between the two recognized brands, Circle K will serve as a Wing agent, providing all of Wing’s extensive range of financial services at all of its convenience store outlets, twenty-four hours per day, each and every day. Starting in Phnom Penh, Circle K will include Wing services in all of its existing convenience stores, as well as all new convenience stores in Phnom Penh, and will soon expand to other large cities in Cambodia.
Wing and Circle K will leverage the rapid adoption of digital payment methods in Cambodia to make shopping at Circle K easy. Customers can handle all of their shopping and daily financial transactions through the convenience and security of their mobile phone and Wing Wallet, and payment convenience of the QR payment system, WingPay, while at the same time experience a world-class shopping experience. Together as partners, Wing and Circle K will reach more customers, and serve them better.
As the single largest platform in Cambodia for the unbanked to carry out their business transactions, Wing’s mobile payment ecosystem will open more possibilities and opportunities for entrepreneurs and SMEs to sell to Circle K outlets. With the ease and convenience of the Wing Wallet, Circle K will be able to pay their supplier invoices, and suppliers will reliably receive immediate and secure payment for their services.

Our partnership allows both Wing and Circle K a solid foundation from which to serve our customers and to grow our respective businesses, while at the same time remain true to our vision.”
Mr. Dennis Keo, General Manager of Circle K, said “In the markets where we operate, it is crucial to our business that we work with the right partner, one that is trusted and respected.
