About Us:

At Altara, our mission is simple: to improve the lives of Nigerians. To do this, Altara and its dedicated team seek to tackle a critical challenge in Africa – access to payment solutions to drive financial inclusion.

Our debut service is “buy now, pay later”, where we allow formal & informal sector workers, and SME owners purchase a variety of products and equipment for their homes and businesses – instead of paying for the products in full upfront, they pay small amounts overtime.

Altara is a Nigerian services venture. Our core value proposition is to improve the quality of life for the average Nigerian. Altara is built on serving the excluded, in search of ways to alleviate poverty.
