Mono was co-founded in August 2020 by Abdulhamid Hassan and Prakhar Singh. Hassan, who was a former Product Manager at Paystack, told TechPoint Africa about how he and his business partner “set out to build a mobile application that could aggregate customers’ financial accounts from different Nigerian banks.”
Since its launch, Mono has been enabling companies and even developers to access financial accounts for both real-time and historical transactions such as account balances, credits, bank statements, and customers’ spending patterns. Already, Mono has partnered with the likes of Flutterwave to be able to initiate direct debit payments and recurring debits.
In the meantime, the API fintech firm has registered customers such as Carbon, Onepipe, Anyi Health, Flutterwave, Swipe, and others including software developers. You may learn more about Mono by clicking here or watching the video embedded below.
