At an event attended by the Nigerian technology players, the media and friends & family, the founder of Hollaport explained that the journey of the App started about 2 years ago and was borne of the need to ease transaction and increase financial inclusion in Nigeria.

Financial Inclusion is a major issue in Nigeria, with over half of the adult population being unbanked and only a fraction of the banked using technology in their processes. Seeing this disconnect, Hollaport Technologies aims to reduce the learning curve associated with mobile applications and has taken time to develop a lifestyle tool that can fit in all areas of life, while maintaining ease-of-use.

“The question has never been one of when, but of how– and this is the gap we intend to fill in the Nigerian market” said Micheal Olowojesiku, Hollaport’s General Manager.

Over 85% of Nigerian adults own a mobile device, 103 million have active internet subscriptions, and a large percentage of this data size have a presence on social media. The app aggregates instant messaging features with financial technology to ensure the app is as relevant as it is functional.

Don't Buy The iPhone SE In Nigeria Until You Read This 13

So the iPhone SE 2020 was announced a couple of weeks ago and the reviews were pretty  interesting considering how the “fruit” company prices their products. Don’t get me wrong if I say Apple is the only fruit company that doesn’t sell fruits, no hard feelings iSheeps .

iPhone SE 2020

 

iPhone SE 2020 Release Date

Let’s be honest, ever since the coronavirus outbreak many people around the world have been laid off. You can picture the recent issue with Access Bank Nigeria here, and the same is happening all around the world.  The new iPhone SE costs about $399 (That’s roughly around N175,000) which I’ll say is quite a lot in this part of the world considering the situation we’re in.

You get the drift right. In general I expect that most people here would prefer to pay for food to put on the table instead of buying a new phone like in some parts of the world. But the second-generation iPhone SE starts at $399 and in the US, some individuals might have the feeling of being “rich” after receiving their stimulus check from the government.

 

Eligible individuals will receive up to $1,200 and an additional $500 for each qualifying child. So all it takes is an extra payment for one child to afford either the 64GB model ($399) or the 128GB variant ($449).

The 256GB model is priced at $549. With the global economy possibly heading into recession, we would expect to see consumers holding on to their current smartphones for longer than they usually do.

Nevertheless, Please don’t get a new phone till this is over, not the iPhone SE 2020 unless it’s totally necessary if you are in any part of the world, whether you’re receiving stimulus packages or not. Get some food and stay indoors. 

By the way the iPhone SE ships on May 13th, just keep that in mind.
