Orange Money and MFS Africa Launch International Money Transfer to Madagascar

Orange Madagascar and MFS Africa have launched online money transfer service Orange Money Transfert International, whereby Orange customers in Madagascar can receive international remittances directly to their Orange Money accounts. Orange Money was launched in Madagascar in 2010 to facilitate domestic transfers and currently serves over one million customers. The international remittance service extends the benefits of Orange Money to the Malgache diaspora community in France and elsewhere.

International customers can register on the website, proceed to pay with most major bank cards, and remit funds to Madagascar with seamless delivery within minutes to beneficiaries of Orange Money accounts at attractive price levels. The highly secure and convenient web portal is provided and operated by MFS Africa and is connected to the Orange Money platform in Madagascar.

“Our intention with Orange Money Transfert International is to lower the cost of sending money back to Madagascar while making it more convenient for both senders and receivers. We believe this ultimately benefits Madagascar Diaspora members and their families back home,” said Jean-Luc Bohe, chief executive officer (CEO) of Orange Madagascar. “Our partnership with MFS Africa gives us access to a pipeline of exciting services that we will be bringing to the Orange Money customers in the near future.”
