MTN MoMo is a fintech platform offering consumers and businesses a host of innovative digital financial services. Among other things, it allows users to access payment, e-commerce, insurance, lending, and remittance services, available in 17 markets across Africa.

We want to unlock economic growth through financial and digital solutions for consumers and businesses of all sizes. As we grow our service offering, we aim to create a marketplace that supports cashless and digital economies through affordable, inclusive, understandable and comprehensive financial services. We play a key role in the evolution of mobile financial services (MFS) to mobile financial (fintech) platforms by offering in-store payments, remittances, prepaid services, mobile wallets, micro-loans and micro-insurance.

The range of solutions to bridge the financial services gap in the markets in which MTN operates requires partnerships with financial service providers, regulatory authorities, other mobile network operators, merchants, distributors, businesses, technology providers, entrepreneurs and developers. It is by working with its partners that MTN improves the economic and social well-being of millions of Africans.

In its commitment to closing the financial inclusion gap, MTN Group has made its Mobile Money platform available across its entire footprint through the MoMo API program.

MTN is now looking for companies, entrepreneurs and developers across the continent to innovate and leverage mobile money to accelerate financial inclusion and digitize payments. MTN is delighted to invite developers and entrepreneurs from 10 countries to participate in the MoMo API Hackathon.
