Patricia is currently one of the top brands in Nigeria. From sponsoring Nigeria’s most popular show to becoming the biggest eCommerce platform, Patricia has grown in leaps and bounds within a short space of time.

Founded by Fejiro Hanu Agbojide in 2017, Patricia is an eCommerce platform that offers unused merchandise such as iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play Giftcards. The company is arguably the first of its kind in sub-Saharan Africa and has birthed other ventures including Patricia Gifts and Room 19.

Small Beginnings

Fejiro founded Patricia sometime in 2017. Prior to launching the platform, he had launched several other business ventures. He had established a mini-restaurant, an airtime vending machine, and a pop-corn stand during his stay in the university.

In an interview, Fejiro described himself as a relentless individual, a goal-getter, and a hard worker.

“I have been an entrepreneur since I was 8, it came naturally to me. I am probably one of the most optimistic people you’ll ever meet…” he said.

According to the serial entrepreneur, he first started Patricia as a side hustle to earn extra cash. He gained inspiration for the company after he lost an iTunes giftcard to a scam. This led to a realisation that there were others like him who couldn’t find reliable gift card exchange platforms. He grabbed this business opportunity and Patricia was born.

How Patricia Works

Although Patricia originally started as just a gift card exchange service, the company has grown to become a provider of other emerging digital currencies like bitcoin and perfect money. On Patrica, you can purchase an iTunes giftcard for your apple music or an Amazon card for all your Amazon shopping needs. You can also trade your gift cards at amazing rates. When it comes to cryptocurrency, Patricia provides a secure wallet where you can store your bitcoin and trade-in bitcoin around the world. Patricia is available in Nigeria, Ghana, and the United States.
