Zimbabweans living in rural communities could now sigh a heavy relief in performing their business following the expansion of mobile money service to the country’s remote areas.
The country adopted a cashless society with the rural communities feeling the heat of the evolution as most dealers in these areas were taking too long to embrace the new technologies but this will soon be a thing of the past as a local mobile telecommunications giant NetOne has taken a huge step in addressing the anomaly.
Addressing stakeholders during the launch of the One Money service, NetOne acting chief executive officer Mr Brian Mutandiro said his organisation has moved in to fill the void that has been left in the country’s remote areas who were finding it difficult to transact.
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information Communication Technology, Postal and Courier Services Engineer Samule Kundishora who was standing in for his Minister Cde Supa Mandiwanzira urged Zimbabweans to embrace new technologies.
The One Money platform which was officially launched in Harare last month comes with a debit card and can also be used for any transaction on the country’s Zimswitch point of sale machines.
