We have been providing credit to Nigerian consumers for over 8 years…

2012The journey to democratize credit in Nigeria beganOne Credit was founded in Lagos, Nigeria. The company provided loans to salary earners only, using a paper based application process that required supporting documentation.2015More credit for more people…The company broadened its service offering, leveraging a network of agents on the ground to get lending services in the hands of thousands of Nigerians under the OneFi brand.2016Going digital…The Paylater mobile app was launched in May 2016. It was the first service of its kind. A fully digital consumer lending experience, available 24/7, that can get borrowed funds into a person’s account in minutes. After just 2 years in market, the Paylater mobile app was downloaded by over 1 million users.2019Enter Carbon…As the suite of financial services offered in the app expanded from just loans and into payments, investments and personal finance management, the name ‘Paylater’ became a little limiting. Carbon represents our intent to offer the most diverse digital finance platform, anywhere.
