In Malawi, Residents Use Debit Cards, Mobile Money, To Pay For Water

Mayamiko Nkoloma, a Malawian lecturer in Telecommunications at the University of Malawi has changed the lives of city dwellers in Lilongwe.

The 2018 ITU telecom world global SME award winner for the greatest social impact developed an electronic system, iMoSyS, that allows residents to pay for water at kiosks electronically.

His product, the e-Madzi (e-water) requires residents to use their credit cards or MoMo to pay for water.
