Tingo (OTCQB: IWBB) is Nigeria’s leading agri-fintech and device-as-a-service company with over $600 million in annual revenues and nearly 10 million subscribers. Created in 2001 by Dozy Mmobuosi, company CEO and cofounder, as an ecosystem to support the largely unbanked agricultural sector in Nigeria, Tingo designed the country’s first SMS mobile banking and payment platform, which is still in use today. Tingo has since evolved into a rapidly expanding group of fintech, agritech, mobile and technology companies. It also continues to innovate and expand services across the continent. Recently, it launched a beta version of TingoPay, a B2B and B2C fintech app that will provide financial services to users inside and outside of agriculture, offering mobile wallets, payment processing and access to specialist lenders, insurers and pension products. In addition, Tingo recently went public in a deal valued at $3.7 billion. A recent article quotes Mmobuosi as saying, “Going public is the next stage in our overarching strategy to build complete digital ecosystems that promote financial inclusion, deliver disruptive financial services, and expand international economic opportunities across the entire continent of Africa. With our proven success in Nigeria, we are already well on our way to becoming the continent’s leading agri-fintech player.”
