Millicom and Vodacom bring mobile money interoperability to Tanzania

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Millicom’s Tigo Pesa mobile money service is becoming the first in Africa to allow transactions with users of other mobile money networks within the same market.

Following an agreement with Vodacom’s M-PESA service, Tigo Pesa customers will be able to exchange money with six million M-PESA customers in Tanzania later this year. They will be able to do this in the same way that they already do with Airtel and Zantel customers following the launch of similar services with Tigo. These were the first examples of such “interoperability” in Africa when launched in 2014.
