One of these “new” methods include the mobile money payment system which has been developed and adopted by most of the telecommunication networks in Ghana. This has enhanced financial inclusion in the country.
As financial inclusion increased, expectations of users also increased. After the realization that they could save money on their phones, make payments and transfer money using their phones, users began to ask for interoperability– the ability to send and receive money from other mobile networks apart from theirs and to also link their bank accounts to their mobile wallet.
As these demands and expectations increased, fintech (Financial Technology) companies saw the need to meet them. So they built platforms that will enhance payments, interoperability between mobile money-mobile money and mobile money-bank transfers.
