Nigeria’s premium online and gaming brand, Betway, has a significant impact on the lives of entrepreneurs and small business owners in Lagos. The brand has announced its support for 10 Fintech point-of-sale (POS) operators across the city with solar-powered kiosks to help their businesses. This is part of the company’s commitment to supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs in Nigeria.

Understanding the pain these POS operators go through on a daily basis due to the power situation in the country and their meager operating capital making acquiring a power generating setup a difficult necessity for most of them, the solar powered kiosks are equipped with a solar panel and inverter to ensure that the Fintech POS operators have access to a reliable and efficient power supply. This enables them to conduct their transactions with ease and provide an enhanced customer experience. The kiosks are also weatherproof and can withstand harsh environmental conditions, making them suitable for use in any location.

Betway is at the forefront of supporting communities, small businesses and entrepreneurs in Nigeria. In 2022, the company supported flood-affected communities in Bayelsa State with a donation of ₦5,000,000 in food supplies and daily necessities products, the distribution of which was coordinated by the Bayelsa State Emergency Management Agency in conjunction with the National Emergency Management Agency. The brand’s CSR initiatives have had a significant impact on the lives of people in these communities.

Regarding the latest initiative, Otunba Kunle Olamuyiwa, Chief Operations Officer for Betway in Nigeria stated: “We are committed to supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs in Nigeria. Our focus is on empowering these businesses to thrive and contribute to the growth of the economy. The solar powered kiosks will help these Fintech POS operators work more efficiently and better serve their customers.” Otunba Olamuyiwa went on to say that many of the POS operators do not have good enough kiosks or stores to conduct their business as many of them operate under umbrellas and are at the mercy of the weather. He noted that this will be a big boost for the beneficiaries of the newsstands and their businesses will indeed thrive better than before.

The fintech POS operators who received the solar powered kiosks expressed their gratitude to Betway for their support. They noted that the kiosks have improved their business and enabled them to provide better customer service. They also praised the gambling company for its commitment to supporting small businesses in Nigeria. Larry, one of the beneficiaries and a Polytechnic graduate who went into the POS business because he couldn’t find a job after graduating from the higher institution, said, “I’m still in shock and I haven’t fully realized that I am now have a state of the art kiosk to conduct my business I saw the video requesting any POS operator in Lagos who needs one to indicate it on Betway’s Twitter handle and I immediately took the step of confidence and asked my friends for supporting me so that I could be selected.I am indeed grateful to Betway for this support.”

Dotun Adepegba, Marketing Manager for Betway in Nigeria said this initiative is in line with Betway’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts to support small business development in Nigeria. According to him, the company is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of people in the communities in which they operate. “We didn’t stop at giving the beneficiaries kiosks to improve their business, we also made sure they went through a brief financial training program that will help them run their business profitably,” he said.
