Leading multi-category app, Glovo, in partnership with Money Africa and Opay, has empowered couriers with essential financial literacy skills, through its Courier Day initiative.

The initiative aligns with an ongoing commitment to support the development of the couriers, helping them grow both professionally and personally.

Through comprehensive training sessions led by experts from Money Africa, and Opay, couriers learned about budgeting, saving, investment strategies, financial planning, and retirement planning. Additionally, they received guidance on achieving efficiency during their day-to-day activities as couriers. A key highlight of the event was the launch of Glovo +, a loyalty program, which gives couriers the chance to unlock advantages such as fuel vouchers, grocery discounts, and insurance benefits.

General manager of Glovo Nigeria, Lamide Akinola, in a press statement released on Friday, reiterated the company’s commitment to creating value for all its stakeholders in Nigeria.

“Our goal is to build a thriving ecosystem where couriers, partners, and customers all benefit from our innovative and tech-driven services. With the launch of Glovo+, we are not only enhancing the professional lives of couriers, but also offering tangible rewards that improve their day-to-day living and acknowledge their dedication and excellence,” Akinola averred.

Speaking on the Courier Day initiative, the head of government & public relations, Glovo Sub-Saharan Africa, Chidera Akwuba, said: “Courier Day is beyond a training session; it’s a celebration of the outstanding couriers. By partnering with organizations like Money Africa and Opay,, who are equipping the couriers with valuable skills that will empower them with the skills required to thrive. As a tech-driven company dedicated to leveraging innovation, we are excited to see how the couriers use this type of initiative.”

Business development manager, App and Cards at Opay, Ijeoma Beatrice Nwachukwu, added, “By contributing to this initiative, we are helping couriers not only manage their finances but also understand how to navigate the broader financial landscape which is crucial for their personal and professional advancement.”

The event concluded with a friendly football match between the couriers at Onikan Stadium. Four teams, representing different regions of Lagos, competed in a 45-minute match, with the winning team earning a coveted trophy and prizes. This added an element of camaraderie and celebration.

The Courier Day initiative and Glovo+ is part of Glovo’s Couriers Pledge, a commitment launched in Nigeria in October 2023 to increase the social rights and benefits available to couriers. Since its inception, the Couriers Pledge has positively impacted nearly 300 couriers in Nigeria and over 4,000 couriers across the countries where Glovo operates.

Another key initiative for couriers is G-Learning, a platform offering a range of free and voluntary online courses. Topics include leadership, management, well-being, productivity, business development, communication, personal skills, and digital skills. The platform harnesses technology to make resources easily accessible to its users.
