Before now, one was expected to visit a Mobile Money merchant to be able to either top-up their account or transfer funds to other mobile money subscribers. Our days of moving from one merchant or agent to avoid long queues, and network challenges is over. I have personally had such experiences where I had to move from one place to the other just to send money to my mother. The most annoying moments were when the agent did not have enough money in their accounts to transfer.
