Orange Money And MFS Africa Launch International Money Transfer To Madagascar

Orange Madagascar and MFS Africa today announced the launch of the online money transfer service Orange Money Transfert International, whereby Orange customers in Madagascar can receive international remittances directly to their Orange Money accounts. Orange Money was launched in Madagascar in 2010 to facilitate domestic transfers and currently serves over one million customers. The international remittance service extends the benefits of Orange Money to the Malgache diaspora community in France and elsewhere.

International customers simply register on the website, proceed to pay with most major bank cards, and remit funds to Madagascar with seamless delivery within minutes to beneficiaries of Orange Money accounts at attractive price levels. The highly secure and convenient web portal is provided and operated by MFS Africa and is connected to the Orange Money platform in Madagascar. The international remittance service is a first step in a growing partnership between Orange Madagascar and MFS Africa to introduce simple and relevant financial services to Orange Money customers.

“Our intention with Orange Money Transfert International is to lower the cost of sending money back to Madagascar while making it more convenient for both senders and receivers. We believe this ultimately benefits Madagascar Diaspora members and their families back home” said Jean-Luc Bohe, Chief Executive Officer of Orange Madagascar. “Our partnership with MFS Africa gives us access to a pipeline of exciting services that we will be bringing to the Orange Money customers in the near future,” added Mr. Bohe.

“The launch of Orange Money Transfert International today in Madagascar is a key milestone for MFS Africa in our journey to bring simple and relevant financial services to mobile users across Africa. Orange Madagascar has been recognised internationally for the excellence of its Mobile Money service and it is only natural that we partner with them to add more value to their customers,” said Dare Okoudjou, Chief Executive Officer of MFS Africa. “With this service, we have kick-started a long-term partnership with Orange, and we look forward to transforming lives and enabling changes in Madagascar,” continued Mr. Okoudjou.
