The Verve Good Life Promo seeks to enable Verve’s loyal card holders to live the good life, whatever the ‘good life’ means to them. Its objective is to alleviate the adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent economic hardship on Verve card holders and Nigerians in general.

She said: “Beyond our commitment to provide Verve card holders with seamless, reliable and secure payment solutions both locally and internationally, we currently identify with their challenges, especially as occasioned by the pandemic, therefore we desire to play a part in alleviating these. This has informed the introduction of the Verve Good Life Promo.
