Remita, MTN collaborate to deepen financial inclusion

Remita has partnered with Yello Digital Financial Services, the fintech subsidiary of MTN Nigeria, to extend payment and other financial services to individuals, groups, and businesses across the nation.

MTN said this move would drive financial inclusion of the unbanked and underbanked in the nation.

In a statement, it said, “With this collaboration, customers will now be able to approach any of the over 150,000 MoMo agents in Nigeria at locations closer to them to initiate and seamlessly conduct transactions such as payment of school fees, water and electricity bills, tax remittances, Internet subscription renewals, money transfer, payments to state and Federal Government MDAs.”

The company added that MoMo agents would now be able to top up their wallets instantly through any of Remita’s multiple payment options and through branches of all commercial banks and microfinance banks.

Speaking on the partnership, the Chief Executive Officer, Y’ello Digital Financial Services, Usoro Usoro, said, “We are delighted about YDFS’ partnership with Remita, as it offers yet another opportunity to extend access to financial services to a much broader section of Nigerians, directly strengthening the financial inclusion aspirations of the Central Bank of Nigeria, which we are committed to and in tandem with our brand promise.

“Our customers can access our services across Nigeria, as we continue working closely with the support of our principal partner bank, Access Bank, to close the financial gap among the under-served.”
