Previously in November 2016, Lidya, an online financial services platform, was launched in the country, which also offers a Mastercard credit card. Similarly, banks are gradually moving towards digital channels to serve their customers. In 2017, FNB customers conducted nearly 97 millions transactions worth NGN4.1tn ($11.28bn) using the FirstOnline and FirstMobile digital channels; these developments will help accelerate the shift towards electronic payments.
- To further enhance financial inclusion in the country, on October 26, 2018 the CBN released a new set of guidelines for the licensing and regulation of payment service banks in Nigeria. According to the regulation, banking agents, telecommunication companies, postal and courier service providers, mobile money operators, financial technology companies, financial holding companies and any other entity approved by the CBN are eligible to establish a payment service bank. In March 2018, the CBN, deposit money banks, mobile money operators and banking agents launched a new project, the Shared Agent Network Expansion Facilities (SANEF). As part of the initiative, 500,000 agent networks will be deployed to under- and unbanked areas in a phased manner. These agents will offer basic banking services such as cash deposits and withdrawals, fund transfer, bill payments, airtime purchases and government benefits.
- Commercial banks/credit card issuers in Nigeria are likely to face competition in the consumer lending space with the emergence of the online P2P lending model. In December 2017, for instance, the P2P lender KiaKia launched an online P2P and direct lending platform. According to the company, interest rates for unsecured credit vary between 7.5-15%, against 30% charged by some of its competitors. It also allows borrowers to choose between seven and 60 days for short-term loans, and charges interest only for the chosen days.
