Etsialat Afghanistan signed a partnership agreement with Afghan United Bank to enhance its mHawala services. The aim is to implement a state of the art mobile salary payment project, also known as the salary payment for GIRoA, through which government employees will receive their salary in their mobile phones via their mHawala accounts.

In addition, the project focuses on facilitating mHawala registered customers with services like; transferring money from mHawala account to AUB account and vice versa, withdraw or deposit money and inquiry of their AUB accounts from a mobile phone and without going to the bank.

‘Our partnership with AUB is a joint effort to ensure that our valued customers have access to world class mobile banking services and to allow them carry out their daily monetary transactions more efficiently and securely from the comfort of their homes.’ said Yasser Aboul Amayem, CCO, Etisalat Afghanistan.
