Lonestar Cell MTN, one of Liberia’s leading GSM and mobile financial services companies, announces that effective today, LBDI customers can now connect their bank accounts to their MTN Mobile Money (MoMo) accounts. Thanks to this seamless connection, LBDI customers can conveniently send money directly to their MoMo accounts from their bank accounts and, similarly, send money from their MoMo accounts directly to their bank accounts.
To use this service, LBDI customers need to visit their nearest branch to link their bank account to their Mobile Money account; then, they dial *156*7# on their phones and follow the prompts. Customers must have their LBDI account numbers on hand to complete the setup process.
Rahul De, CEO of Lonestar Cell MTN, said, “We believe that digital advancements improve lives. We support the government’s aim for a cashless digital economy. We are excited about the service because we are giving customers access to their money anytime and anywhere. In just a few easy steps, MoMo customers can conveniently transfer money between their MoMo wallets and their bank accounts when they need to.”
