Nigerian fintech start-up Kippa is planning a partnership with an unnamed bank to offer bank accounts to small businesses, CEO Kennedy Ekezie-Joseph tells The Africa Report.

Small businesses customers, most of whom are unbanked, will be able to sign up for an account via Kippa’s app in the first quarter, Ekezie-Joseph says in Lagos.

Kippa offers digital business and finance-management solutions for small businesses in Nigeria. The company’s mobile bookkeeping app lets customers record day-to-day sales, expenses and debts outstanding,  and includes analytics features.
