Welcome to Okra Developer Documentation, where you get exclusive guides and relevant resources on how to access financial data and connect with financial accounts seamlessly via our secured and easy to integrate API.
Okra, which connects to all Nigerian banks, is the leading open financial platform in Africa. Our products are delivered via an enterprise-level PaaS with access to all banks and products via a single API.
We care deeply about the developer experience and follow a set of integration principles that make our products a delight to work with.
Once you implement Okra, your users will be able to connect their bank accounts to your app in just seconds. After which, you can retrieve financial information about that user.
To create this connection, your users need to share their online credentials with Okra. We encrypt these credentials as we receive them and only use them to access the account in read-only mode.
Once the link is created between your app and your user's institution account, you can pull financial data. This includes the accounts in their name, the real-time balance, transaction information and etc.
We also provide developers with a range of tools and resources to successfully build open finance projects:
