Airtel Uganda and Centenary Bank have partnered to launch the Mobile Wallet service, a service that enables the bank’s customers to access, deposit and withdraw money from their bank accounts using their phones.
The service is an additional feature on the bank’s 24/7 mobile banking platform dubbed CenteMobile. Other financial services on the CenteMobile platform include transfer of funds, payment of utility bills, request for mini statements, and fundraising, among others. With Mobile Wallet, Airtel Money customers who have accounts with Centenary Bank will be able to deposit mobile money directly to their phones.
To access the Mobile Wallet service, one has to be registered with CenteMobile first. CenteMobile can be accessed on any type of phone and as an application on smartphones.
