Diego Camberos, Managing Director of Millicom (Tigo) in Senegal
Mobile financial services are highly important to our subscribers and to drive continued success, it was important for us to speed up an easy to use, secure and reliable offering to market. Ericsson has been an important partner for us in launching Tigo Cash to our entire subscriber base, ensuring that we’re able to scale to meet the high demand we anticipate as sign-ups continue to increase.

Ericsson is helping Tigo and its partners make mobile money for the unbanked and underserved a reality in West Africa. Beyond this important deployment, we continue to work with operators and financial institutions globally to support the fast rollout of mobile financial services that transform how local businesses interact with customers, and provide a safer way to store, send and receive money.
