AN association has been formed to bring together agents dealing with mobile phone money transfer to facilitate networking and help them articulate their concerns about challenges affecting the sector.

With the success EcoCash and the recent launch of Telecash and the re-launch of NetOne wallet, agencies of the mobile operators said they needed to speak with one voice hence the formation of the association.

Founding director Francis Chinjakure said 100 members have so far joined the group adding they were targeting to bring together more than 1000 agencies.

“As agents we have decided to come together and discuss with these giant service providers that its high time they realise that much of their success story is a picture we paint for them as their brand ambassadors and we would want to speak with one voice t hence the formation of Mobile Money Transfer Agents Association Of Zimbabwe (MMTAAZ),” said Chinjakure.

The association boasts of a membership of more than hundred agents in Harare alone and is looking to expand its activities to all parts of Zimbabwe before midyear.

Chinjakure said MMTAAZ seeks to address issues such as lobbying for policies geared towards the realization of equitable returns by the Agents, ensuring a conducive atmosphere for money transfer services.

They also want to make sure that the voices of agents are heard when mobile money companies make decisions that impact negatively on the operations of the Agents.
