Zenith Bank and Orange Sierra Leone yesterday, Thursday, 12 December 2019, signed a partnership agreement geared towards providing various financial services for customers in the country. Managing Director of Zenith Bank, George Meze, said their partnership with Orange Sierra Leone will improve Sierra Leone GDP; provide opportunities for business people and other individuals. He underscored the point that the platform created as a result of the partnership will preclude the promotion of other products that will be launched in the not too distant future. Meze emphasized that they are working towards cash less environment even though they are yet to achieve this. He stated Zenith Bank was the first bank to start mobile money with Orange in 2010 when they started operating ZAP. He said now they are rebranding it with the Bank to wallet that will give customers added advantages. The outgoing MD disclosed that his company is leveraging the more than 2 million subscribers of Orange Money to increasingly provide services to its customers.
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
Orange Money’s Chief Executive Officer, David Mansaray averred that many people have envisaged a situation wherein they run out of money especially during the weekends and that the introduction of the Bank to Wallet transaction in the newly signed partnership will enable people to simply access monies from their UBA accounts to their Orange Money accounts. The new partnership, he also noted, will create ease for business people who also run out of money while transacting their business. He emphasized the fact that individuals who want to use the platform must be fully registered with the Orange Money platform and must also own a bank account with Zenith. The climax of the ceremony was the signing of the MOU between the MD of Zenith and Orange Money CEO.
