Lonestar Cell MTN, one of Liberia’s leading GSM and Mobile Financial Services companies, announces that, as of August 3, 2020, Mobile Money customers can receive money from their family and friends anywhere in the world directly to the MoMo accounts, free of charge with the launch of International Remittances.
Christopher Ssali, Acting General Manager of Lonestar Cell MTN Mobile Money, said, “Many Liberians rely on international financial remittances from abroad. Most people endure long lines in packed banking halls to receive the cash sent to them by their loved ones. Now, with MTN MoMo Remittances, they can avoid the stress and the risks by receiving their remittances directly to their Mobile Money accounts. And we are growing the MoMo family so that our customers can enjoy a truly digital financial lifestyle where they can use the money they receive to pay bills, buy goods and pay for services they need with Mobile Money on *156#.
“We are excited about this because it makes our customers lives easier and better and we are supporting the government’s aim for a cashless digital economy,” Ssali added. This is our promise to our customers: when it comes to safe, secure and convenient digital payments, with MoMo, we’ve got you.”
According to the company, the standard Mobile Money fees will apply if customers cash out the remittance or perform any other MoMo transactions.
Customers who are not on MTN Mobile Money can join easily, and sign-up is free at any Lonestar Cell MTN service center or registered MoMo agent with a valid identification card, they company says.
