On the 3rd of April, we announced on our twitter Page that we are now 9 years into providing simple ways to make money transfers and access to financial services!
We look back on the years and the word “innovation” is a fundamental part of our story —Since 2009, we have put so much work into creating meaningful financial technology that keys into our mission of making it easy for people to send and receive money and to deliver financial services to over 70 million un-banked/underbanked Nigerians.
In achieving our mission, we have served communities across Nigeria through our product channels which includes our Agent network, Merchant network- Paga for businesses, and Online/mobile channels- web, mobile, apps & *242#.
Leveraging close to 15,000 of our agent outlets — the single largest and most active agent network in Nigeria, we have provided communities with easy and convenient access to quick payments, simple money transfers and financial services. This has also created thousands of jobs for entrepreneurs who run these agent outlets daily.
Organizations and businesses like Dangote, DStv, Ikeja Electric, UK Immigration, JAMB and thousands of SME’s have also partnered and engaged with Paga to handle bulk disbursements and collections for their businesses.
Meeting world security standards of PCI DSS level 1 certification, together with a license from Central Bank Nigeria and the backing of Nigeria Deposit Insurance Commission; our self-use consumers have relied on our different channels (web, mobile, app and *242#) to make safe and quick payments and for easy access to financial services.

As a team, we remain highly motivated to continue to grow as a the first mobile money company in Nigeria while leading the drive for financial inclusion in Nigeria.
