Halopesa announces cost free money transfer service for its customers

VIETTEL Tanzania PLC, which trades as Halotel, has slashed costs associated with sending money on its Halopesa Platform, giving its clients a chance to transact without incurring any costs for the service.

The company has also announced reduction of costs of sending money from Halopesa to other mobile money platforms.

Deputy Director for Halopesa services, Vu Tuan Long said the decision was meant to allow an increasing number of Tanzanians, mostly those in remote areas, to subscribe to the service and relieve them the trouble of sending their cash through other means.

“We are now removing service charges so as to give rural dwellers a chance to send money from Halopesa to Halopesa with zero costs for the first time,” said Long.

Long says the decision to remove service fee for sending money from Halopesa to Halopesa, was meant to give the firm and subscribers a free, viable and secure money sending option as they undertake their various social and economic activities.

“By doing so, we are also relieving them of the trouble of travelling long distances as they seek to conduct financial services at commercial banks,” he said.

He said the company has also reduced the costs of sending money from Halopesa to other mobile money platforms as it endeavours to ensure that customers were saving money irrespective of the network.

Halopesa prides itself for having over 55,000 agents who offer services to over one million subscribers across the country.
