Pilot an Off-Grid Payment System
Nigeria’s low mobile money penetration (about 1% of our population) makes it difficult for PAYGO companies to expand into the last mile and collect payment from customers. The goal of the pilot is to develop a “work-around” that will address the current difficulties faced by SHS companies in collecting payment from their unbanked customers. The workaround would facilitate the aggregation of payment channels - Agent Networks (cash collection agents); mobile money.
NoMAP is financing the integration of PAYGO billing systems of five SHS companies to the switch of SWIFTA, a payment aggregator.
