Berwyn, PA (USA), Jun 14th, 2015 — Prepay Nation, a leading provider of cross-border prepaid mobile airtime transfers, has announced its partnership in Kenya with Bharti Airtel, a leading telecommunications services provider with operations in 20 countries across Asia and Africa. With this partnership, individuals living in the US, Canada, and Europe will be able to transfer small values to Airtel Kenya customers in the form of airtime minutes, without fees and from over 175,000 retail locations and web sites.
The partnership will provide the over three million Kenyan expatriates with access to instant International Mobile Top Up (IMTU) service through Prepay Nation’s distribution network. IMTU is becoming a preferred method of family support for immigrants around the world, who are able to utilize the widespread penetration of mobile phone infrastructure to send support to their loved ones back home, without the high cost of sending money.
“Airtel Kenya is an ideal partner for us,” said Hervé Perrin, VP of Business Development at Prepay Nation. “Kenyans living abroad are among the most active remitters in the world, and as such are well-served by the access. They will now have access to a cash-based, no-fee service for sending Airtime back home instantly. With more than 8 million subscribers in Kenya, Airtel’s integration to Prepay Nation’s huge distribution network will connect them to their loved ones abroad and we are delighted to add that value to Airtel’s offerings.”
“We are pleased to integrate with Prepay Nation,” said CEO of Airtel Kenya, Adil El Youssefi. “Our alliance enables us to broaden our footprint of international mobile top-up connectivity and reach millions of Kenyans eager to send assistance at home. This is another outstanding enhancement to the services we offer our subscribers, and Prepay Nation’s flexibility has been instrumental in making it happen.”
