Flutterwave has announced a partnership with Airtel Money to expand Airtel Money’s services to businesses across Eastern Africa.
According to the companies, this partnership will enable businesses integrating Flutterwave in Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia, Malawi, Kenya, and Rwanda to receive payments from Airtel Money customers, as well as make bulk payments into Airtel Money wallets.
They said the service would go live once it had regulatory approval in the respective countries, and would reach Airtel Money’s 19.2 million customers based in East Africa.
Flutterwave Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Olugbenga Agboola, said, “Our business goal is to continue to support African businesses digitise their payment methods and introduce them to a world of opportunities that come with digitisation.
“We are excited to have partnered with Airtel Money to further advance local businesses’ payment methods which will allow them to increasingly provide more services to their customers, grow their customer base and revenue.”
Airtel Mobile Commerce BV CEO, Vimal Ambat, said, “Airtel Money is committed to bridging the digital divide and enhancing financial and digital inclusion for millions of businesses across sub-Saharan Africa.
“Our partnership with Flutterwave will help to empower even more customers through simple and accessible payments services, using the latest technologies that support business innovation and boost local economies.”
