Airtel Uganda has today added a new service onto its Airtel Money platform in partnership with Equity, Centenary, Pride, Opportunity and DFCU banks. The Airtel Money Mobile banking service will enable Airtel Money customers to deposit money from their Airtel money accounts to their bank accounts and withdraw money from their bank accounts to their Airtel money accounts.
Airtel Uganda has been at the forefront in regards to partnering with companies and fostering innovations that are aimed at improving the lives of their customers. With innovations such as; sending and receiving money across networks, bill payments with Airtel money, Airtime topping up using Airtel Money and KCCA fee payment using Airtel money, Airtel has always had the interests of their customers at heart and has tried to cater to all of them despite their different locations and economic activities.
Announcing the official launch of the partnership at Serena Hotel Kampala, Mr. Nuhu Kanyiike, the Airtel Money Director at Airtel Uganda, said the partnership was not a promotion but a new addition to the Airtel Money platform.
“Better security, convenience and accessibility for our customers, colleagues and stakeholders is at the heart of our purpose at Airtel Uganda and we are extremely happy to partner with these banks to enable our Airtel Money customers deposit money from their Airtel money accounts to their bank accounts and withdraw money from their bank accounts to their Airtel money accounts whenever they want, wherever they are.”
Commenting on this partnership, Airtel Uganda Managing Director, Mr. Tom Gutjahr said Airtel Uganda was proud to partner with the strongest and most popular financial institutions in the country, in the creation of a service that will bring much needed relief to people and even organizations.
“Each development and partnership that involves Airtel Money is ultimately designed to ease the lives of our customers and all Ugandans. We look forward to forging more of these partnerships and ultimately making Airtel Money the number one partner of choice in mobile banking,” Gutjahr added.
