hello cash

Mobile Financial Inclusion

 
Lion International Bank S.C. and Somali Micro Finance Institute S.C., in partnership with Belcash, launched HelloCash services in Ethiopia in February, 2015. Shortly afterwards, Corporative Bank of Oromia S.C. joined the partnership and expanded the mobile money service delivery across Ethiopia.
The HelloCash mobile money platform provides financial services to all Ethiopians through their mobile phones. The HelloCash mobile money service is operational in most parts of the country, including a number of functioning agent outlets and branches.
 
 
 
The HelloCash service enables existing and potential customers of the financial institutions to carry out transactions in four key areas of financial transactions: deposits, withdrawals, transfers and payments. One of the unique features of HelloCash mobile money service is the shared infrastructure feature, allowing multiple banks and MFI’s to serve each other’s customers.
 
This allows all customers of partnering banks to visit any agent or branch to utilise financial services, regardless of which bank the customer belongs to. The sharing of agent networks allows partnering banks to optimize their investment, as well as increase nationwide service coverage.

CEO of Belcash International, Mr. Mountaga Vince Diop stated that this is the beginning of what seems to be an irreversible step to reinforce financial inclusion for all in the country. Belcash Technology Solutions PLC provides the banks and the MFIs, go-to turnkey mobile money solutions (including capacity building, business and operational models, hardware, disaster recovery and call centre facilities) and facilitates the penetration of mobile and agent banking in the Ethiopia's financial landscape. The financial institutions providing HelloCash in Ethiopia are confident in building a unique network of more than 20,000 agents across all of Ethiopia within the next 3 years.

The mission of HelloDoctor is to allow clients who seek healthcare services in Ethiopia to receive reliable, affordable and immediate high-quality services by optimizing existing healthcare infrastructure through ICT solutions. HelloDoctor builds networks of doctors, ambulance services, and medical centers, making their services easily accessible to clients over the mobile phone.

The platform optimizes the use of human resources by providing independent doctors and nurses the option of using their time to provide medical advice for callers using their mobile phones. Telemed's tracking systems also integrate remote monitoring of patients through IVR calls and feedback systems which include alerts and reminders for those providing primary care through the phone to administer optimal advice or treatment to callers (patients).
 
HelloDoctor offers instant health services that are affordable, easy to access on a reliable platform all through the use of mobile phones. In 2013, HelloDoctor was awarded the HANSHEP Health Enterprise Challenge Fund from USAID and DIFID.
