“We have organized the promotion jointly with one of our partners, FCB to emphasize that it is now possible for our shared customers to push money from their bank accounts into Mpamba wallets and vice-versa.

In his remarks, FCB Head of Transaction Banking & Marketing, Ewen Hiwa hailed the agreement between the two institutions saying it provides convenience.
