Imagine you don't have to pay in full for your purchases today but rather pay equal monthly instalments over time. CowriePay allows you to do just that. As confirmed by the our research, majority of the middle-class in Nigeria do not have access to consumer financing due to the cumbersome application process and lack of credit reference data, and most of the time rely on the informal sector with the associated cost and risks. To solve this, we have designed and implemented a one-of-a-kind solution that allows merchants and retailers to offer consumer financing at the POS. (Finance@POS) backed by by their employers. Extend your staff benefits through CowriePay: Your staff can now get financing of up to 3x their monthly pay when buying big ticket items like furniture, home appliances, electronics, computers etc. Payment is then spread into 6-12 equal monthly instalments to be taken directly from the staff salaries. Transparency The process is transparent to the borrower and the employers. Your company will have access to our portal in order to enrol staff members and monitor monthly returns. Your enrolled staff members will have access to their activities details including listing of purchases and payments deducted from their salaries. Seamless Process The payment process is fully automated. CowriePay, will send monthly payment schedule for direct debit after your vetting and approval. This information is available on the portal at any time. Competitive Interest Rates We are continuously working with financial services providers to provide the best rates to our borrowers.
