In today’s videocast, I discuss the rise of Paga. Paga is a fintech company based in Lagos, Nigeria. It started as a mobile money company but quickly pivoted when it realized that mobile money was not (quickly) taking shape in Nigeria. Paga is growing and is well positioned to become a very important financial institution in Nigeria. Its numbers, revealed by its Founder, are better than most public-traded Nigerian insurance companies and in coming years, I expect it to overtake most banks in profitability.
