Orange Uganda starts mobile money service

Wednesday 16 January 2013 | 10:38 CET | News
Orange Uganda has launched its mobile money wallet service in partnership with Pride microfinance and PostBank. CEO Philippe Luxcey believes that Orange Money will build on its successes in other African countries. Orange plans to follow other players to enable customers to use Orange Money to pay utility bills, too. Customers will be able to find out whether transactions have reached their intended recipients. They will be required to change their passwords from time to time and to enter a personal identification number (PIN) in order to access Orange Money services.
