MTN Ghana launched its Mobile Money month celebration across its three business districts. The MTN Mobile Money month which was introduced in 2012 is celebrated in August each year to deepen awareness among Ghanaians about the benefits of the MTN Mobile Money Service.
The event which was held at Rawlings Park was attended by a section of MTN’s senior management and staff, MTN Mobile Money partner banks, MTN Mobile Money merchants and market women.
This year’s celebration is under the theme “Mobile Money, driving financial inclusion in Ghana” and will be marked by a series of activities across MTN Ghana’s three Business districts in Accra, Kumasi and Takoradi.
Activities outlined for the month-long celebration include a Mobile Money stakeholder workshop slated for Wednesday, August 12, 2015 to discuss the role of MTN Mobile Money in the drive towards financial inclusion in Ghana. Other activities to be undertaken include an SME Drive, market activations and merchant fora as well as fraud awareness trainings for MTN’s Mobile Money merchants.
Speaking on behalf of the CEO at the launch, Mr. William Tetteh, General Manager for Capital Project Group, MTN Ghana said “the MTN Mobile Money service has played a major role in bridging the gap between the banked and the unbanked. Within six years of existence, the MTN Mobile Money service has 4.8 million registered Mobile Money customers, 19,500 Mobile Money merchants and 18.5 million monthly transactions.”
