By Mohamed Dabo

Airtel Africa, a telecommunications and mobile money services company, is scaling up its operations with the help of WorldRemit, a digital money transfer service provider, to broaden its instant money transfer services across Africa.

Airtel Money services are already available in the Democratic Republic of Congo (RDC), Uganda, Zambia, Tanzania, Malawi and Niger. Customers can now send money to Mobile Money accounts from Rwanda via WorldRemit.

“The connection to more Mobile Money accounts through Airtel Africa allows us to expand our payout network and options available to customers across the continent,” said Andrew Stewart, managing director for Middle East & Africa, WorldRemit.
