Lonestar Cell MTN, Liberia’s leading GSM and mobile financial services company, announces that effective Thursday January 7, LBDI customers can now connect their bank accounts to their MTN Mobile Money (MoMo) accounts.
The company explains that LBDI customers can conveniently send money directly to their MoMo accounts from their bank accounts and, similarly, send money from their MoMo accounts directly to their bank accounts.
To use this service, LBDI customers need to visit their nearest branch to link their bank account to their Mobile Money account; then, they dial 1567# on their phones and follow the prompts. Customers must have their LBDI account numbers on hand to complete the setup process.
Rahul De, CEO of Lonestar Cell MTN, said, “We believe that digital advancements improve lives. We support the government’s aim for a cashless digital economy. We are excited about the service because we are giving customers access to their money anytime and anywhere. In just a few easy steps, MoMo customers can conveniently transfer money between their MoMo wallets and their bank accounts when they need to.”
LBDI CEO, John BS Davies expressed satisfaction in partnering with Lonestar Cell MTN to bring efficiency to their customers, “LBDI has been an active campaigner for digital banking in Liberia. We remain committed to working with institutions like Lonestar Cell MTN to digitalize payment systems in the country. I urge customers to take advantage of the new platform and use all the features to make their lives better.”
MTN Mobile Money has always been more than just sending and receiving money. The platform facilitates fast, convenient, and most importantly, secure transactions. Signing up for MoMo is free.
