As technology advances, so does the flow of engaging in businesses begin to shift. This was a huge opportunity for Nigeria’s premier digital bank, ALAT, a pioneering concept of Wema Bank Plc and the Sport Betting franchise, Bet9ja as they collaborated for the 2019 retreat of the super agents for Bet9ja.

Speaking at the annual Retreat organized by the Super Agents of KC Gaming Networks Limited (Bet9ja) held this year at Orchid Hotels, Lekki, Lagos from July 23 to July 26, 2019, the Head of Gaming at Wema Bank Plc, Mr Kunle Alarapon, commented that the commitment of Bet9ja to the sport business in different parts of the country has been noticed by the bank.

He also established that the management of Wema Bank Plc and Bet9ja would be working together to strengthen their business ventures.

Mr Alarapon charged the Super Agents in attendance to embrace ALAT, a menu-driven digital banking solution that allows customers to conduct financial transactions with ease on their mobile phones.

He disclosed that with ALAT, customers have access to seamless account opening through their mobile phones and that prospective beneficiaries of ALAT can access a soft loan without collateral whatsoever.

“As with everything else on ALAT, you can now apply for a loan without a paper work, no visitation to any physical location and response time between acceptance of offer and loan disbursement is in minutes. You can borrow as much as N200,000 without any collateral,” he noted.

He stated that ALAT’s Goals are created by each customer based on the immediate requirements of their businesses.

“Whether you’re setting up a budget, saving for that special item or just looking for a rewarding investment plan, ALAT’s Goals will get you covered. You can create as many Goals as you need. It’s as easy as setting your target, choosing your saving frequency and watching the magic happens. ALAT handles the rest and makes you some good money in the process,” he said at the event.

Mr Alarapon clarified that the super agents could access the numerous benefits of ALAT through their cooperative societies. According to him, the super agents could instruct their cooperative societies to collate and channel their goals to Wema Bank for the purpose of accessing the benefits of ALAT.

Also adding his input on the retreat, Mr Ayo Ojuroye, Chief Executive Officer, Bet9ja revealed that the purpose of the event was to deliberate on how to expand the sport betting business. In order to actualize that, he said the agenda for this year’s retreat was robust as it included trainings, seminars, outdoor activities as well as presentations by sponsors.
