Kigali — MOBILE network operator, MTN, has pledged its support to Rwanda's national agenda to promote a cashless economy.
This follows the launch of the third edition of its annual Mobile Money Month.
The campaign is based on the theme, "Let's Go Cashless."
MTN Mobile Money currently contributes 17 percent of the company's revenues to date.
MTN has further seen a steady growth in the number of Mobile Money subscribers of above 1,9 million who make more than20 million transactions monthly worth Rwf150 billion in transaction value.
In line with its 20th Anniversary celebrations, MTN will also be recognizing, rewarding and appreciating customers who have been using MoMo since its inception.
