Etisalat Afghanistan has launched “a comprehensive range” of mobile financial services under the mHawala brand.
mHawala will allow Etisalat Afghanistan’s customers to purchase airtime directly from their handsets, send money from their mobile phones to family and friends, pay bills via their mobile phones, buy goods and services from shops, and deposit or withdraw cash from authorised mHawala distributors or Etisalat partner banks.
Ahmad Alhosani, CEO, Etisalat Afghanistan, said: “The launch of mHawala will offer customers fast, convenient, safe and affordable access to financial services. The service aims to save time, and is both simple to use and always available. Our ultimate goal is to allow all Afghans access to basic and advanced services.”
mHawala Mobile Accounts, which are like normal bank accounts, can be opened at any Etisalat store or authorised Etisalat mHawala Distributor. The service is available for existing and new Etisalat Afghanistan customers.
