In a bid to improve financial inclusion in the nation, Nigerian-based e-payment and e-collection platform Remita developed by SystemSpecs Limited partners with Cellulant, a Pan-African fintech and agritech lender to provide safe and convenient payment service options for businesses and individuals in every part of the nation.
This partnership will boost the capacity of the unbanked and under-banked population across the country to access financial services. The combination of these two powerhouses would provide a larger number of Nigerians with easier access to make payments to Federal and State Ministries, Corporate Organisations, Departments and Agencies and other billers such as hospitals, water service providers, educational institutions, electricity companies and others on Remita’s large merchants’ base.
