Splash and MoreMagic Solutions launch mobile payments in Sierra Leone



image Splash and MoreMagic Solutions have introduced a new SMS based mobile payment service in the West African state of Sierra Leone. The new service powered by MoreMagic’s MWallet platform allows Splash customers in Sierra Leone to transfer money via their handsets even if they do not have bank accounts.

Users can purchase "SplashCash" at the firm’s agents, including branches of GT Bank, and can then send it via text to any Zain or Africell mobile phone. Then the recipient can withdraw cash at specified agents.

Ben Farren, director, Splash, says: "Splash promises to provide access to basic financial services to many Sierra Leoneans for the first time. Unbanked customers can now send money across the Country at the touch of a button."
