Ghana’s leading telecommunications provider, MTN, has successfully launched MTN Mobile Money in partnership with 9 banks ahead of its competitors to allow Ghanaians to perform a range of basic financial transactions using their handsets.

The service, which was launched at the International Conference Centre in Accra, will allow subscribers to have access to money beyond banking hours or at anytime.

MTN Mobile Money gives cash management freedom to subscribers in line with MTN’s pay off line: ‘everywhere you go’ for as long as users can access MTN’s network.

The secured system and processes conforms to best practices in the industry and highly regulated by relevant authorities.”

With this innovative product, subscribers would enjoy the convenience of easily transacting from the comfort of their homes or offices at any time of the day, instantly.
