All subscribers in Tanzania can now transact via Tigo Pesa

Tigo Tanzania has announced that customers from across all networks can now seamlessly send and  receive money to any Tigo customer in the country through its Tigo Pesa platform.

The announcement of this new campaign dubbed, NITIGOPESA, comes after the successful launch of interoperability with banks and other mobile operators in Tanzania. This educational campaign is set to help users of mobile money from all networks understand how they can conduct their mobile money transactions with any Tigo Pesa customer and merchants in Tanzania.

Speaking last week at a press conference during the launch in Dar es Salaam, Tigo’s Head of Mobile Financial Services, Ruan Swanepoel said Tigo is committed to creating a cashless society where any customer can enjoy flexible payment options and enjoy affordable and convenience services. This consumer-centered innovation speaks to financial inclusion as it helps draw more cash into the formal financial system and helps improve customers’ lives by simplifying transactions.

“From now onwards, customers of other mobile money networks such as M-Pesa, Airtel Money and EasyPesa will be able to transact with Tigo Pesa customers and pay for goods at our wide network of Tigo Pesa merchants spread all over the country”, said Swanepoel. 

He said that customers from across all networks can now pay for services or products at any merchant shops across the country that have the ‘Lipa hapa kwa Tigo Pesa’ sign.

In 2016, Tigo Pesa service completed a full interoperability with other mobile financial services operators and banks in Tanzania to make its services available to more people.
