South Africa’s international money transfer provider Hello Paisa has introduced a service that allows consumers to send money to MTN Mobile Money Wallets in Ghana. Previously Hello Paisa customers could only send money to selected banks in the country.
Yusuf Dadabhay, Head of Operations, Hello Paisa said, “This offers customers convenience and more options to send and receive their money, making it easier than walking to a specific branch to collect cash.”
Sending money to an MTN Mobile Money Wallet is an instant and safe transfer of funds that gives access to more than 65, 000 agent outlets and over 700 ATMs for cash withdrawal in Ghana.
Hello Paisa has partnered with MSF Africa to launch this new service and is offering customers free airtime when they send money from South Africa to Ghana for a limited period.
The Hello Paisa mobile money remittance is only available in Ghana but the company hopes to launch it in other African countries using the same model and service provider in the future.
