Nairobi, May 18 2011… Revolutionary mobile money solution Orange Money has moved in step with developments in the financial and telecommunications sectors to allow customers to access services from Equity Agent outlets countrywide.

The customers will now be able to access the services from the more than 2,300 Equity Agent outlets opened over the past few months, to deepen access to financial services among all Kenyans.

Telkom Kenya Ltd CEO Mickael Ghossein said the access to services from the agency banking outlets will complement Orange Money services that are already offered at Equity Bank branches, independent Orange Money agents, Orange shops and dealer outlets across the country.

Ghossein added, “Orange is a brand that is associated with innovation, and the agency banking model that has been widely accepted by our partners; Equity Bank, gives us a new avenue through which we can adopt a more innovative way to offer Orange Money services”.

The CEO said Orange was committed to its strategy to continue growing a reliable and robust distribution network, through which customers can derive optimum convenience.

“We are true to our promise, to continue availing our services more conveniently, and that is why we have seen it fit to increase the number of areas in which you can access Orange Money services”, he said.

The revolutionary mobile money solution was launched in November 2010, combining both the features of a mobile money transfer and mobile banking solutions.

As at March this year, there were more than 115,000 registered Orange Money customers with projections that the number will increase in the coming months, as the service moves to sign more partnerships with other organizations driving the new growth.

“Orange Money is only in its seventh month now and by the time it turns one year old we will have made other landmark strides, which will continue to set us apart from competition. We are grateful for the continued support from our strategic partner Equity Bank”, Ghossein said.
