Etisalat starts mobile money transfer service in Benin

Tuesday 10 December 2013 | 10:51 CET | News
Etisalat Group has announced the expansion of its mobile phone-based commerce service Flous through its subsidiary Etisalat Moov in Benin. Flous, which means 'money' and is known as Flooz in Benin, enables customers who sign up to use their mobile phones like digital wallets. They will be able to pay for goods and services, transfer money to the friends and family members, withdraw and deposit cash, top up mobile phones and manage their bank accounts. The service is offered in partnership with Banque Atlantique du Benin. The market for financial services has yet to fully mature in Benin.
