Orange has announced that Mali citizens will now be able to receive international remittances through a service called Orange Money Transfer International (OMTI)

Mobile network operator Orange and MFS Africa have announced the addition of Mali to its portfolio of countries enabling the local population to receive international remittances via OMTI.

“Orange Money customers in Mali can now receive international remittances directly to their Orange Money accounts,” read a statement by Orange.

“Orange Money Transfer International now makes it easier and faster for Malians abroad to send money to their relatives in Mali, and at lower rates. We have developed a wide network of over 1,000 agents throughout Mali to facilitate the withdrawal of money for Orange Money customers," said Jean-Luc Bohé, CEO of Orange Mali.

Dare Okoudjou, CEO of MFS Africa, explained that bringing the service to Mali would help meet the high demand for the service in what he termed an "easy and convenient way".

“The extension of the service to Mali, several months ahead of schedule, proves that simple, convenient and affordable money transfer services meet a real and urgent need,” said Okoudjou.
