Welcome to NALA #DemoDay

At NALA, we value accountability and transparency, so every two weeks, on Wednesday afternoon, the entire company down tools for 30 mins and dials in.  

Demo Day is not just an opportunity for each team to showcase what they have shipped and what's on the roadmap but also a time to hold ourselves accountable and ensure we are moving the needle in the right direction. 

The dream was always to make #DemoDay public, inviting you, our users, to stay informed about our progress and upcoming plans. This blog marks a step towards that dream. Welcome.

#DemoDay Live: 

Earlier this year, we organized our first-ever #DemoDay Live event in Nairobi, Kenya, to promote transparency. We were joined by esteemed guests from the Kenyan State Department for Diaspora Affairs, UBA banking group, Equity Bank, friends of NALA, and some of our loyal users. Our CEO and founder, Benjamin Fernandes and COO Nico Eddy led discussions on the payments landscape in Kenya. We also showcased our latest products and services, including NALA for Business, Pay bills & Buy goods, and our European launch. The event was a success, and we celebrated some exciting news!

May Demo Day: What We Built Last Month

So, now you are up to speed, here’s last month's round-up from NALA #DemoDay

Expanding into New Markets

We are thrilled to announce that we have launched payments to Cameroon and Côte d'Ivoire for testing. We're committed to making money transfers easy, fast, and accessible for everyone, and expanding into new markets is a crucial part of our mission.

Increased Transparency

We believe in financial transparency and empowerment. We have made transaction limits easily viewable on our business platform to support this. Need a higher limit for a specific day or month? We've introduced a "Request Limit Increase" button to simplify and efficient the process.

Improved Functionality for NALA for Business

 We have enhanced the functionality of NALA for Business. Users can now search or filter transactions based on key parameters such as "status" or specific date ranges. Reviewing the details of any transaction is now effortless, allowing businesses to streamline their operations and gain greater control over payments.

Coming Soon: NALA Goes French

AAs we expand into more WAEMU nations, we want to offer the best possible service to all our NALAFamily. Therefore, we are excited to announce that we will launch a French-language app version soon. We are currently in the testing phase, so keep an eye out for updates.
