We Turned Dreams Into Reality – Empowering Entrepreneurs

At Paga, one of the many ways we make life possible is empowering people with resilience and self-confidence. Faith Igberase is a married woman, an entrepreneur & owner of Success Delicious popcorn.

Early in 2016, during our #MakingLifePossible contest, Faith wrote to us; “My husband was deported from South Africa and since he returned empty handed have not been able to find a job or anything to do. This situation made life so miserable for us and our little son. But because I have learnt a lot about catering in school, I started a very lucrative popcorn business and started supplying all the itinerant traders in every bus stops and junctions schools, stores and even market women. My family has been feeding on this” Said Faith.

Faith expressed her financial challenges in running her business. However, like most small businesses, Success Delicious Popcorn faced a struggle to overcome its competition. She lost her customers to her competitors because they had a better packaging than her products. Sales dropped and made life hard for her and her family.

“Thanks to Paga for making life so possible for me by supporting my Success Delicious Popcorn business in the just concluded #MakingLifePossible contest. I never believed I could make it to the finalist. I was so surprised and I feel so blessed to have emerged as one of the grand prize winners. They have made my dreams come through as the new rebranded package will be in every store very soon. Expect to see well packaged, delicious and crunchy Success Delicious Popcorn in every mall, stores, market and supermarket in every state of Nigeria and all over the world. Thanks for your support Paga and I will forever remain grateful”.  – Faith Igberase

Faith needed N250,000 to enhance Success Delicious popcorn packaging. She received N200,000 from Paga.

The money was used to purchase essential materials for the business branding, which significantly reduced production cost.

“Paga is a great platform to make visa application payments online” – Biodun

paga-visa-story

Customer stories are an invaluable way of helping us to understand how our services deliver impact on you as Nigerians.

Few weeks ago, Biodun had a hitch processing his UK Visa application payment. He reached out to Paga for a better way to pay for his application and we intervened.

We’re proud to share Biodun’s experience with you.

Paga is a great platform to make visa application payments online. I tried it for the first time on August 11 after all attempts to use ATM cards (linked to a well-funded account with active token) failed. But I had to check if it was genuine: read virtually everything I found about the platform online particularly on its founders and investors. I felt they were credible enough: more so, I could tweet at the CEO or company page if anything went wrong. 

I chose to give it a try. It was quite easy to open mypaga account. I transferred some money from my personal account to test the platform. After waiting for verification, mypaga account was credited. I sent in all required documents to upgrade my account to level 3 so I could payments exceeding N100, 000. Eventually, I paid the visa fees through mypaga account and my visa application was successful.

I strongly recommend Paga to every visa applicant: it is easy to open, load and upgrade your account. Visa application payment is fast. If you run into any hitches, you can call their responsive customer care agents or engage the CEO on Twitter!’’ – Biodun

We appreciate hearing about your your experience with our services, whether it’s a complaint or compliment. So tell us what you like, what you don’t and of course let us know what you’d love to see from Paga.

“I was at the Barbers Shop to get my haircut; a man also came in to do the same. Moments later this gentle man who just walked in (waiting for his turn to get his hair cut) started to complain about him not being able to purchase airtime – as shops around did not open.

It was quite a delight to tell him I could sell/transfer airtime of any amount to him – directly to his phone number, any network.

He was excited – and he asked HOW?

It’s possible with Paga I said. Ohhh Paga!!! He exclaimed.

It was great talking to him about Paga and how he can get on board. We logged on to mypaga.com, bought the airtime and he made his call.

Interestingly, the barber was astonished as he mentioned – ‘sharp sharp’ the airtime don enter – nice one Oga!”

 

David & The Wheelbarrows – A #MakingLifePossible Story

When we carried out our #MakingLifePossible contest in April, we were amazed by the inspiring stories people sent from across the country. When the contest ended, we realized that each of the stories we received deserved to be shared and celebrated.

One of the people who participated is David, a trader in Oyingbo Market, Lagos.

When we first met David, he said; “I noticed that in our country Nigeria, poverty is prevalent. For example, there was this man that walked up to me one day to beg for help. He asked me to assist him #300 to start a “pure water” trade. That with it, he will stop begging for alms and create a money making source. I was greatly moved and offered him my help. From time to time, he comes around to thank me for my assistance.”

David entered the contest for assistance to provide wheelbarrows for youths to make little income – helping traders and customers move their goods from one place to another. David’s goal was to keep youths away from crime and improve the community. In this present economic situation, that’s a great way to think!

Did David achieve this goal? Yes, and even more!  

We saw the amazing effort David was making, shared in his goal and also saw the need to make financial services available in his community because there are no banks around and traders had to go a distance to deposit their daily income into their bank account.

Paga provided the funds needed for the production of the wheelbarrows.

And in addition, set David up to be a Paga agent for FREE.

Now, David can keep youths off the streets with the wheelbarrows provided for them to make daily income and also help people in his community pay their bills, send money and make deposits into their bank account.

David’s words of appreciation to Paga
“My appreciation goes to Paga for organizing this competition, never believed such could have come up and be real, when I first mentioned it to my wife that I was a winner, she told me it was a scam but because I’ve had cause to pay my GOtv subscriptions on Paga platform through their agents, I never had a doubt. Now with all the events past by she is now Paga’s No. 1 fan. My appreciation again goes to Paga for making me an agent all expense paid, also my gratitude goes to all the never tiring staffs for their welcoming attitude. My dream of poverty alleviation was boosted with purchase of three wheelbarrows to keep the youths busy vista vis making the society crime free. Thank you for making life possible.”
