Mobile money initiative life transforming, says Paga
PAGA- Nigeria’s homegrown mobile payment service provider, said the revolutionized mobile payment system is life transforming.
Paga’s co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Tayo Oviosu, who made the observation as the company celebrated the success of its network by rewarding the highest performing agent in 2014, added that mobile payment is not only transforming businesses, but people in various communities.
The promotion, tagged “Do More Earn More”, which ran from August to December 2014, was designed to encourage agents on Paga’s network nationwide to boost their transaction volumes and values, as well as their commissions and stand the chance to win monthly prizes.
“With over 7000 agents, driving over 6.6 million transactions, the agent network remains a vital part of Paga’s mission to transform lives by delivering innovative access to payments anywhere in the country.
“That is why our primary focus is on empowering our agents by letting them discover firsthand the potential access to payments that has not only to transform the lives of people in their own communities, but also their businesses.
“The Do More Earn More promo served as a catalyst to help them explore and build on these profitable opportunities within their various communities. I am extremely excited to be here to witness the culmination of hard work and determination,” Oviosu said.
But Mr. Charles Nnamdi of Show Deck Audio Visual System, who emerged the grand prize winner of the promotion and runs a Paga outlet in Oshodi, Lagos, said: “I am thankful to God and to Paga for giving me the opportunity to provide vital services to my community and grow my business. Winning one of the monthly prizes during promotion inspired me to work harder than ever and I am excited that my hard work is being acknowledged today in such grand fashion.
“To have the Founder and Co-founder of Paga here today means a lot to me because it shows that they do appreciate the hard work we agents put in and that they are personally committed to helping us succeed.
“That is just one of the many reasons I will keep up the good work, and continue to apply integrity to my Paga business to build acceptance for mobile payments within my community.”
Already, with agents in over 34 states, Paga has one of the fastest growing agent networks in the country, even as the management said investing in those agents remained a major priority for the business.
Paga Co-Founder, Jay Alabraba, added: “At Paga, our focus is not only on building agent numbers, but on building the agents themselves.”
