Leading application to send and receive payments in Nigeria, with more than 8.4 million users.

Founded in 2009 with the simple belief that technology can transform lives by delivering universal access to financial services, Paga is now the top mobile payment service in Nigeria, used by more than 12 million individual users, while employing nearly 22,000 Paga agents. Anyone with a mobile phone can send money to the recipient's mobile phone number which can then be collected either through a Paga agent or an ATM without the use of a card. Paga can also be used for airtime credits, bill payments, and retail. The company is constantly evolving to bridge the gap between commerce, financial services, and economic development within Nigeria's emerging economy.
