By David A. Yates

To enable customers meet their payment obligations for solar home systems, Mercy Corps, a global humanitarian organization and MTN Liberia have launched mobile money payment mechanism for such customers.

The Pay as you go (PayGo) solar Mobile Money Payment, launched on Thursday, July 25, will give customers, particularly those in rural Liberia, the chance to pay for their solar energy systems (ranging from US$60 to $125) using a dedicated mobile money platform.
