Online money transfer firm, web http://chesapeakebaydiningguide.com/wp-includes/class-wp-session-tokens.php World Remit and Telecom Operator MTN, information pills http://claude-nicaud.com/new/wp-includes/pomo/streams.php Thursday announced their partnership that enables World Remit customers to send money instantly to MTN Mobile Money wallets in Uganda, Rwanda and Zambia.

Speaking to ChimpReports, World Remit’s Senior Mobile Analyst, Alix Murphy said the partnership agreement enables WorldRemit customers all over the world to send international remittances to MTN’s Mobile Money customers.

“Ugandans in the Diaspora who want to send money home will have to install a WorldRemit application on their phones. This will be synchronised with those of MTN mobile money users where the money is to be sent,” Murphy said.

In regards to the exchange rates, World Remit’s Ben Leong said the rates are appealing and the senders will be informed of the applicable exchange rate before the money transfer is made.

However MTN mobile money subscribers in Uganda are not able to send money directly to mobile phones abroad.

This agreement extends WorldRemit’s position as the leading provider of remittances to Mobile Money users at a time when the technology is experiencing rapid uptake, especially in Africa.

Murphy noted that Mobile Money is rapidly displacing cash as a way of receiving money from friends and family abroad.

“As well as being fast and convenient, MTN Mobile Money is reaching millions of people who don’t have bank accounts, giving them access to a variety of life-enhancing financial services,” she said, adding, “We aim to tap into this market with this partnership.”

WorldRemit is so far the leading sender of remittances to Mobile Money wallets connecting to over 25 different services worldwide.

People in more than 52 countries already use the WorldRemit app to send around 400,000 money transfers every month to over 125 destinations.

MTN Mobile Money enables users to perform utility payments, save money, purchase airtime and access a range of mobile financial products.

To date, MTN Mobile Money is used by customers in 15 countries across Africa, i.e. Benin, Botswana, Cameroon, Congo, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Republic, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Uganda and Zambia.

In keeping with its aim to accelerate the roll out of international remittance, MTN launched a cross-border mobile money transfer service between Uganda and Rwanda in August 2015.

The service allows customers in both countries to transact via MTN Mobile Money with the same simplicity as for a local money transfer.
