We are building an ecosystem that simplifies how businesses accept payments, make payments and manage operations. This journey started in 2016 with simplifying access to financial services using "" a chatbot integration that responds to financial requests on social apps.

It then morphed into powering a community of independent businesses we call Agents who act as neighborhood banks offering basic financial services such as cash withdrawal, transfer and bill payments to all Nigerians, especially those in underserved communities.We believe this technology and innovative solution can power all kinds of businesses whether they are accepting payments for goods and services or helping others access cash or send money. So, we created easy-to-use tools with flexible options for all kinds of businesses to accept, process and manage payments online and offline. As we stay true to our mission to make financial services accessible and affordable, we are one step closer to bringing a lasting change to Africa and Africa's commerce.
