Beyond being an e-commerce platform for trade, KongaPay has positioned Konga as a solution provider and a pacesetter to other e-commerce platforms on how e-commerce can contribute to employment generation, entrepreneurial empowerment, ecosystem development and also help in the economic growth of Nigeria and Africa.
