Independent decision in Nigeria

At the beginning of October, Nigeria celebrates the country’s independence. Even outside of Nigeria, in the USA, people on the streets are celebrating Nigeria’s independence and their own. But being independent also means being free to decide about your own money. Compared to other African countries, Mobile Money is not yet so widespread in Nigeria. There are still very few service providers there with which sending money to a Mobile Wallet is possible. But slowly more and more companies see the potential in the Mobile Money market. Since only about 40% of the population in Nigeria have a bank account, a Mobile Wallet would be a real alternative to a bank account for all other inhabitants.


Rapid growth in Ghana

Where it used to be difficult to transfer money to a Mobile Wallet because of legal regulations, interest has been growing steadily since the loosening of the regulations in 2015. Meanwhile the Mobile Money market in Ghana is the fastest growing in all of Africa.
