Airtel Malawi – one of the mobile network companies in Malawi – claims to have hit the 1,000 milestone in setting up mobile money branches across the country.
Airtel Money Director Brighton Banda made the revelation during the opening of the Bwandilo Airtel Money branch in Lilongwe on Wednesday.
Banda said Airtel Money has expanded its network of branches, agents and kiosks giving local people the choice to own and run businesses and in turn become financially resilient and independent.
“We are delighted to share a milestone which is the silver arm of Airtel. It is a walk through mobile service centers that help the agent to remit or withdraw money without going to the bank,” he said.
Banda said the centers will help individual customers load money into their mobile phones, withdraw and register their SIM card.
Besides setting up branches, he said, the company has registered a network of more than 70,000 agents, most of whom are new business owners.
These agents have the ability to run mobile money businesses, he said.
Banda further said that his business will continue to empower and transform the lives of Malawians.
Banda added, “Airtel Malawi is committed to further improving services to reach even more people and empower them.”
Bwandilo Airtel Money branch manager Susan Tsonga said the branch will help many customers.
“It is a strategic place for people to transact through Airtel money services,” she said.
Tsonga said people will be able to transfer their money and do their business easily.
