Key Use Cases

Transform the way your customers save, borrow, transfer and spend money

Covering a wide spectrum of payment services extending from financial inclusion to financial enrichment, mobiquity® Money provides a variety of use cases to customers which range from peer-to-peer money transfer to merchant payments to bill payments and also include the following:

Merchant Payments

To help mitigate the problem of cash crunch, offline merchant payments via mobile money were introduced in Zimbabwe. Today there are more than 50,000 merchants ranging from supermarkets to street vendor. mobiquity® also supports online merchant payments which helps marketplace customers meet three goals: increase revenues, provide a better merchant experience, and reduce onboarding costs. Companion Cards, NFC and QR code-based payments support secure in-store digital payments, thus providing enhanced customer experience.

Bill Payments

Paying his electricity bill was a big challenge for Mohamed as he had to shut his tea-stall for a day and travel to the department office for payment. Bill payment through his mobile wallet has enabled Mohamed to pay the bill from his stall, saving both time and money for him. Mickael in Niger, where over 90% of the households use coal or wood for cooking, uses the same service for the purchase of gas bottles every month with an additional benefit of paying bills in installments in the time of financial hardship. mobiquity® allows users to pay all types of bills on the go.

Financial Aid distribution

Long-drawn conflict in Iraq has displaced 3 million people and forced 237,000 Syrians to become refugees. Sara and her family were dependent on financial support from humanitarian organizations like UNHCR, WFP, etc. for her basic needs of shelter, food, and clothes. Leveraging the network of a leading telecom in the region, mobiquity® enabled these organizations to digitally disburse aid to Sara’s family and 200,000 other households covering over 1 million people.

International remittances

Remittance cost in some countries go as high as over 10%, making it difficult for people to send money to their families. Chiso’s brother went to Malawi last year and is a driver for a rich businessman. He sends $100 every month to Chiso, who is a student, for his monthly expenses. Earlier, Chiso not only received less than $90 from this, but the money usually took 4-5 days to reach him. Through using mobile money now, Chiso gets around $99 for his expenses and that too within minutes. And he receives details of the transaction through a message instantly. Every month, over one million dollars are transferred between Malawi and Tanzania digitally.

Companion Cards

Every morning, Abdul goes to work, leaving his mother Saeeda alone in the house. Since Abdul takes his phone with him, Saeeda was unable to purchase necessary items using mobile money. With the introduction of mobiquity® powered companion card, linked to Abdul’s mobile wallet, Saeeda can now easily run the house while Abdul is at work. She can make transactions at every merchant accepting Master Card or Visa, and can also opt for ATM cash-out in case she needs cash immediately. Companion cards have made life simpler for Abdul, Saeeda, and many more households like them.

Government Payments

Salary payments to govt. employees in Afghanistan were previously marred by corruption with senior officials pocketing salary disbursement. Junior policeman, like Abdul, were often unaware of their actual salary. The government, in partnership with a telecom, decided to disburse salaries digitally, making the process easy and corruption free. mobiquity® helped Abdul and other policemen to receive their actual salary, 30% more than what they used to get before. mobiquity® further also helped to uncover that 10% of the workforce was ghost police officers, whose salaries were pocketed by others.

Savings Club

Romy owns a grocery store in Bulawayo and keeps most of her savings in a group of six women which can be accessed when needed. Digitizing the group activities has provided a more inclusive, secure, transparent, and convenient way of savings for Romy and her group. Every week, Romy transfers $5 digitally to the club, and with the amount she gets every sixth week, she replenishes stocks and purchases new products for her store. With savings club many females like Romy are financially included. This has reduced the financial access gender gap by 50% compared to conventional banks.

Micro-Savings Account

23% of adult population in low and medium countries save at home or through informal channels. People like Alex find it difficult to open a savings banks account owing to complex registration, high minimum balance and high maintenance fees. Using his mobile money account, Alex was able to open a saving account instantly and earns 4% annual interest without paying any maintenance fee or maintaining any minimum balance. Over 1.5 million other people in Zimbabwe are saving small amounts in their accounts, helping them to build resilience and prepare for financial emergencies.

Mobile Ticketing

In Bangladesh, about 47% of urban residents do not have convenient access to public transport. Black marketing for tickets has also generated a scarcity issue. Sabbir, a daily wage earner from Dhaka, Bangladesh is a frequent train passenger who use to spend 4 hours of his daily time, standing in a queue to book a ticket. Mobile ticketing powered by Mobiquty made ticket booking convenient, simple, reliable, and transparent. Access to public transport now is easy for Sabbir. Thanks to mobiquity the average cost of obtaining tickets is now reduced by 84% compared to doing it manually.

Social payments

While revisiting the pictures of a recent trip on social media, Eric immediately realized his pending payment to Mandi. Instead of pausing his social media fun to make a payment, Eric simply opened the chat window to make the payment on the social media platform itself. It quickly followed up with a thank you note from Mandi, after which the friends were back to gossiping about the fun they had during the trip.

Short-term small-value loans

Ahead of the festive season, Fareeda was looking to stock up her garment shop’s inventory. She had similar plans last year but access to capital was a big challenge for her. Banks denied her loan because of her small and variable income. This year, she came to know about micro-loans offered by her mobile money provider without the need of any document or opening a savings account. She easily secured a loan of $100 and made profits during the festive season after paying back the loan. Over 2 million other users like Saeeda are benefitted by such a service in Tanzania.

Micro-insurance

Farmers like Ibrahim often face hardship as a result of one bad season. To avoid this, Ibrahim insures his crops with premium as low as $1 per year, paid through his mobile money, covering his crops in event of unfavorable weather. Similar is the story of Mbaku, a street hawker who pays micro-premium every month digitally to insure his health and life. The claims are credited to his wallet are processing. mobiquity® is helping individuals globally build financial resilience by offering micro-insurance services using their mobile phones. A similar service in Zimbabwe is helping over 2 million individuals, providing them the opportunity to have better healthcare.
