Although some people might say that $2 million isn’t much of a deal compared to others, we’re talking about a 2-year-old startup here.
Bankly joins the bandwagon
Bankly is an online platform/app that takes the financial game digital, for locals. They assist mostly small-scale traders who usually run something called rotat ing saving or credit organizations in Nigeria.
TechCrunch, Adejana said that “Just in the same way mobile inclusion happened, you need to then focus on acquiring customers who, after transferring cash to their mobile accounts, use it to buy airtime or make payments.”
According to reports, Bankly has over 15,000 agents right now and is looking to up their customer base to 2 million in just 3 years. They are confident in achieving this goal considering the fact that they have received some investments from other fintech companies in Nigeria.
To be honest, here, Nigerian startups have been making quite the waves lately and if care ain’t taken they might turn out to become the tech-dominated country in Africa.
