Paga is a mobile payment company. We are building an ecosystem to enable people to digitally send and receive money, and creating simple financial access for everyone.

Paga was founded in early 2009 by Tayo Oviosu, with a purpose to make it simple for one billion people to access and use money. We are solving two key problems that exist around the world – eliminating the use of cash for transactions and access to financial services.

Paga’s first market is Nigeria, with commercial launch August 2012. In Nigeria, Paga is a mobile money operator licensed by the Central Bank of Nigeria. Paga offers a range of services such as: free money transfers, deposit to bank accounts, buying/sending of airtime, bill payments, remittances, bulk disbursements & collections that are accessible via our online channels (web/app) and on any basic mobile phone via dialing *242#. Paga is also the largest distribution network for financial services in Nigeria through its nationwide agent network – mom and pop stores, pharmacies, grocery stores – where people can get access to financial services.

Paga was founded on the simple belief that digital technology can be leveraged in building an ecosystem that enables people to digitally send and receive money and offer simple financial access for everyone. We aim to accomplish our purpose by launching our services in various emerging markets and partnering with relevant financial institutions to deliver our services.
