How much did the Customers Promo contribute to this new figure, and is Paga finally getting grasp at a real market. Funding is no problem for the tech startup, as it did get a big in-flow of cash to expand its service offering nation wide, July 2012.
Whatever the case may be, this new success takes Paga a step further in terms of providing online – especially mobile payment solutions to Nigerians.
