Western Union, a leader in cross-border, cross-currency money movement and payments, has collaborated with AirtelTigo Money (ATM) to enable Ghanaians to receive international money transfers through Western Union directly into AirtelTigo Money mobile wallets.
Upon receiving money from their loved ones abroad, customers have the freedom to access funds in several ways. They may use the funds to pay bills, top up airtime, or withdraw the money in local currency from over 80,000 AirtelTigo Money agents nationwide and partner banks.
“In line with our commitment to make life simple for Ghanaians, we are excited to collaborate with Western Union to allow our customers receive money from friends, family and others from various countries into their AirtelTigo Money wallets,” said Acting Chief Executive Officer for AirtelTigo, Murthy Chaganti.
