“In line with our commitment to make life simple for Ghanaians, we are excited to collaborate with Western Union to allow our customers receive money from friends, family and others from various countries into their AirtelTigo Money wallets,” said Acting Chief Executive Officer for AirtelTigo, Murthy Chaganti.
“We will continue to introduce innovative mobile financial solutions and services to enable our customers to enjoy using their AirtelTigo Money (ATM) wallet for all digital transactions,” he added.
The Head of Network – Africa, Western Union, Mohamed Touhami El Ouazzani, said: “Our aim is to offer seamless money transfers for all. This means reaching out to customers across all channels including mobile. “We are excited with this collaboration with AirtelTigo Money, delivering on our pledge to expand more digital and physical channels for money transfers to provide choice and more convenience for customers.”
MTN had officially announced a partnership with Western Union last month for remittances into MTN Mobile Wallets. AirtleTigo customers will now also be able to experience that same feature.
