Sparkle, a Nigerian digital banking startup, has been granted a banking license by the Central Bank of Nigeria to carry out banking activities. The startup which was launched in Nigeria by Uzoma Dozie, the former Diamond Bank CEO, aims to provide a seamless solution to the banking problems faced by Nigerian individuals, SMEs, and retailers.
This new startup promises to offer comprehensive and efficient support for individuals and corporate bodies. Their services will include flexible payment schemes, savings analytics to provide greater freedom, flexibility, and control over finances and lifestyle.
Sparkle will be launching a mobile app that will be powered by data and technology. The app will give users full access to one account with different wallets. The app will also offer multiple services such as the purchase of airtime, data, payment of bills, and many more. The Sparkle Digital Banking app will be available on both IOS and Android platforms.
“Sparkle is redefining the Nigerian commerce industry by joining financial services with a seamless lifestyle solution. I am excited to be launching a service with such great potential,” Dozie said.
“We are eliminating barriers using data and technology, and by so doing, we are empowering Nigerians and providing them with an opportunity to access valuable solutions for personal and business needs,” he added.
Sparkle is partnering with PwC Nigeria, Visa, and Microsoft to offer machine learning, cloud computing, industry-leading expertise, tax, and financial advisory services to its customers.
With our collaboration with other global partners, we aim to catalyze the growth of Nigerian individuals, entrepreneurs, and businesses, Dozie concluded.
