Speaking at a joint launch of the service, Head of TNM Mpamba, Chikhulupiliro Mphatso, said the extended service "underscores Mpamba’s ability to break cash transfer barriers and limits while increasing customers’ access to liquidity in a flexible and convenient manner."
Mphatso said the new service represents a broadening and deepening of the partnership between TNM and Mukuru dating back to 2016 when the two digital financial services enabled international remittance services direct to Mpamba wallet.
“We are proud to translate our three-year partnership into something that meets the international remittance needs of Malawians regardless of their mobile network service provider. As Mukuru’s points of representation grow globally, the Mpmba distribution network is also growing rapidly ensuring that money sent through Mukuru is accessed by the intended recipients easily by being redeemed from any TNM Mpamba agent,” he said.
He said the deepening of the scope in the partnership with Mukuru is in line with TNM Mpamba’s strategic direction in the provision of real financial inclusion.
Mukuru country representative Peggy Mhone said: “Mukuru’s partnership with TNM Mpmba gives the people of Malawi the best opportunity to receive money in a convenient way by visiting any TNM Mpamba agent closest to them.”
Mukuru enables people in Malawi to receive money sent from Botwana, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, United Kingdom, Canada and the European Union.
