It also presents an avenue to deepen the Nigerian financial markets, offering investors with a new attractive asset class. The Commercial Paper also establishes FairMoney’s reputation among debt investors as a category leader.
The CP Issuance will support the Company’s short-term liquidity needs and finance the growth in its loan book.
