Infibranches is currently the only company in the fintech space that has built a secure platform that serves as a single point of integration for payments and other financial services for service providers in the Nigerian renewable energy sector.
The platform also supports agent banking businesses, enabling them to provide services such as cash payments and withdrawals, money transfers, utility, and telco payments to name a few.
The Nigerian Off-Grid Market Acceleration program, a not-for-profit initiative backed by UK charity Shell Foundation, USAID, and UK aid, has supported Infibranches to develop a single payment integration solution for the Nigerian SHS sector that helps facilitate payment collection through a network of agents across Nigeria, including banks and mobile agents across the payment value chain.

All On’s investment will trigger the next phase of Infibranche’s growth by financing inventory and agent acquisition product and product technology development, and provide working capital for business operations towards the company’s distribution of Solar Home Systems for households and commercial users across Nigeria with a special focus on Nigeria Delta.
