About OjirehPrime

By 2023 half a billion Africans will just turn 18 years old. The strength of Africa is in her young population but the continents growth will depend on technology. At Ojirehprime, we believe leveraging on technology would redefine the concept of banking in Africa

Problems & Solutions

Africa is home to the world’s youngest and fastest-growing population, the continent is urbanizing more rapidly than any other part of the planet. Africa’s 1.1 billion citizens will likely double in number by 2050, and driving financial inclusion is key to the economic growth of Africa.


Africa has over 700,000,000 adults below 25years of age and 500,000,000 active phone lines on a 50% penetration rate yet 350,000,000 adults do not have a bank account. Nigeria alone has 150,000,000 active phone lines yet 60,000,000 adults do not a bank account primarily due to lack of proper means of identification


At OjirehPrime, we’re leveraging the high growth of mobile devices and online presence of Millenials to provide digital banking services for both the banked and unbanked.


We stay committed to innovating our way with well-defined road map
