Have you ever been stuck without any way to load airtime during a journey? And without any retail shop to buy from? During the first decade of this century as mobile phone service gained popularity in Nigeria, the issue of getting airtime while on the go was a huge debate.

MTN Nigeria scored their first hit when they introduced the ‘MTN Borrow Airtime’ feature on their service. This enabled users to borrow and load airtime on their mobile phones and pay later. Soon, all networks were doing this.

People started clamouring for a more comfortable way of getting airtime. Thanks to the banking services available in Nigeria, network providers like MTN, GLO AIRTEL and Etisalat have incorporated this new feature to their networks. It enables users to load airtime directly from their bank accounts to their SIM and even for third parties.
