Tingo is Africa’s leading provider of services such as smartphone leasing, agri-marketplace, airtime top-ups, utilities payments, and bill pay; the company also provides insurance and lending services. Called NWASSA (“NWASSA”), this offering is designed to deliver financial inclusion and significant social impact in Africa’s agriculture sector. Currently, more than 9 million customers depend on Tingo and NWASSA for services that enable them to run their farms successfully. “Tingo is thrilled to be recognized for our continued efforts to bring about social upliftment, financial inclusion, food security and female empowerment in our core market in Nigeria and across the African continent,” said Tingo president Chris Cleverly in the press release. “One of our key goals has always been to empower SME female entrepreneurs engaged in the agri-ecosystem to deliver true gender equality and diversity.”
