OkayNaira Loan App Review

OkayNaira is a Nigerian Fintech app exclusively designed for application and disbursement of quick loans.

The company behind the app is LitFin Nigeria Ltd, a Lagos-based financial technology company. Most Nigerians rely on such Fintech companies to provide them with loans to take care of their emergency needs before paying back a reasonable interest in the future. These short-term loans can be aquired for emergencies like buying a new phone, paying shool fees or for medical emergencies. Actually, most loan apps don’t really ask what you need the money for, just that you repay their interest on time.

Is OkayNaira legit or a scam?

OkayNaira is legit, a lots of people have received their loans though some complain of difficulty when paying back their loans. The App is owned by the parent company LitFin Nigeria Ltd, and their head office is located at No. 12 Aliu Imah street Ikorudu Lagos, Nigeria


OkayNaira is one of the few loan apps in Nigeria that offers a reasonably high amount to first time borrowers. You can receive up to N 10,000 and the loan term is also long, up to 180 days. The app might be a bit glitchy at first but their services are relatively okay. You will also be required to link your ATM card with your account and pay N50 before they process your loan.

    1. I got a loan I did applied for and I never noticed ….all I saw was call tagged scam so I didn’t pick but when it became much I picked and he said I borrowed #7k to pay 16k now because of overdue. I tried to argue it out …the next hour one Mr Idion Stanley sent message to most of my contact with my wedding pics that my family is a family of thieves that we are wanted. Till today his both Stanley and Barr. Justine as revealed by true caller don’t pick my calls after I was forced to pay back #16,160.
      I have reported it to the police and I will take all legal actions against them
      Oknaira is scam!

  1. I borrowed some money from okaynaira few days ago.Now I wanted to defray my debt but could not access the app to activate payment because the app always pop up a message indicating that my location GPS or GRS has failed. I have done everything possible to open up the app and pay but all my efforts to no avail.
    To this effect,I want your organization to send to me the amount i owed and account number to enable me to pay my debt via bank transfer.My details are:NAME:Lovett Agusa Onanore
    68 Amai Road, Obiaruko, Delta State.

  2. This looks like a scam. You received a loan from OkNaira for a seven day repayment plan only for the same people to start calling you 2 days after that if you don’t return the money you’ll be scandalized.

    Please someone should tell me am not in the den of scammers
