Is the PAYG financing available in any country?
Currently, the financing is only 100% secured for Nigeria and Kenya. We are however looking to expand the offering into more countries in the near future.
What does payment collection in relation to debt repayment look like?
- We would be using Hello Tractor’s platforms to receive payments automatically based on the hectares serviced. Debt repayment will depend on services carried out along the route.
