“The partnership between MTN and Visa will provide MTN Mobile Money customers with access to the entire Visa network, which includes merchants, online vendors and ATMs, to enable a “mobile” payment experience,” said Pieter Verkade, MTN Group chief commercial officer.

The service is will be made available to customers in Ghana first, before the end of the year. The service will then progressively be rolled out across the MTN footprint.
