Hi everyone! I’m Tayo Oviosu - founder and CEO of Paga. I’m very excited to be here on Radar and join the conversation. I started Paga over 6 years ago out of my own frustration carrying cash around with me - there had to be a better way to pay or get paid! I boot strapped the company for the first 6 months before I started raising financing from angels and then eventually institutional investors.
Today, Paga is a payments business with two primary channels - a network of physical stores (agents) and an online/mobile platform. We recently crossed 3 million users, with over 800k active, and now have over 8,000 agents in 35 of 36 states of Nigeria. Our company has 208 employees and we are committed to making an efficient payment system accessible to all Nigerians.
You can ask me anything here, and I will do my best to answer accurately and give the info!
