FIFTY NINE (59) MTN Mobile money (MOMO) merchants and agents have been recognised by the company for their commitments, contributions and support to make the brand the choicest for money transactions.
Speaking at a dinner and Awards night in Kumasi Saturday night, Shaibu Haruna, CEO for MTN MOMO noted that the event was to say thank you to its hard working merchants and agents.
He noted that their hard work have held the brand high from operational areas towards achieving transition in its MoMo Services to a full business platform as part of broader ambition for 2025 strategy.
Mr Haruna announced that solid services would be introduced in the coming years to advance customer experience as an evolving mobile financial tool.
The top performing Vendors received Motor Bikes, Smart TVs, Laptops, and CCTV Cameras.
Kingdom Books Stationary at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) campus in the Kumasi metropolis took home the coveted award as the overall best MoMo Agent
His prize was a Ghc50,000 electronic cash (E- cash) and a motorbike.
In 2009, MTN Ghana set out to redefine the course of Ghana’s financial sector with the launch of MoMo and after 10 years of implementation, this e-financial mechanism has become a major bug in homes and the business community in general.
The service has 11.3 million subscribers with 250,000 agents and 200,000 merchants across the country.
The MOMO CEO attributes the successes over the last decade to the critical contributions of merchants and agents.
He described the financial year as a difficult one with the introduction of E-levy as well as the challenges customers had with accessing their MoMo wallets during the SIM barring exercise.
He said their resilience as a people has enabled them to soldier on and today, they are to celebrate their achievements and strategize for next year.
