#1 way to pay and get paid in Nigeria, with over 8.4 million users.

Founded in 2009 with the simple belief that technology could transform lives by delivering universal access to financial services, Paga is now the leading mobile payment service in Nigeria, used by over 6,000 businesses and over 8.6 million individual users, while employing nearly 16,000 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.
