Group CEO/founder of Kuda Technologies Limited, Babs Ogundeyi, the milestone is part of the bank’s unrelenting commitment and resilience of the team at Kuda to build sustainable and creative solutions enabling Africans to enjoy affordable and quality financial services at all times.
Ogundeyi said Kuda Bank has grown from a digital services solutions start-up to an industry leader and that announcing its new customer base was a significant achievement.
According to him, Nigeria is a crucial market for the digital-only bank, and the growth rate in customer acquisition is a push to expand the brand.
“Nigeria is where Kuda’s story began, and it remains a key market for us even as we expand to reach Africans in other parts of the world. Our success here is a motivator and a blueprint for everywhere else we will establish our brand of accessible, affordable, and rewarding financial services.”
