Okra is a fintech startup building the industry’s “super-connector” by creating a secure portal and process to exchange financial information back and forth between customer, applications, and banks.

Okra is the simplest way to connect your African bank account to an app.

Okra was founded in June 2019 by Fara Ashiru Jituboh and David Peterside. The company is headquartered in Lagos, Lagos, Nigeria.


Okra offers several paid packages for those types of integrations and opens up the code to developers for its five product categories: authorization, balance, transactions, identity and accounts.


Okra has already created a diverse client list that includes online payments startup Carbon, insurer Axa Mansard, online bank Branch and Nigerian digital lender Renmoney.
