Ghana : Airtel Money rolls out School Pocket Money Service

Mergers, Acquisitions and Financial Results

Airtel Money has added a new product to its growing bouquet. The “School Pocket Money Service” is aimed at eliminating the stress associated with parents and guardians who struggle to send pocket money to their wards in senior secondary schools.

Corporate Relations Manager of Airtel Ghana, Kwame Gyan, explains that Airtel Money has partnered some Senior High Schools to provide a convenient and safe mode of transfer of pocket monies from parents to wards.

“So far we have mainly Senior Housemasters from PRESEC, Labone, Ada Senior High, Accra Girls, Kumasi Girls, Accra Academy, St. Augustine’s College, Mfantsipim School, Aggrey Memorial and Prempeh College who serve as Airtel Money agents in these schools. Parents and guardians with wards in these schools are thus able to send monies to them using Airtel Money”.

Airtel Money has consolidated its position as the leading mobile money service in Ghana, and remains the only mobile service that allows customers to link their Airtel Money wallets with their bank accounts.
