It’s apparent, eDahab is recognized as one of the most successful mobile money services and has over the years promoted our economy in many ways, eDahab has enabled citizens to send money through mobile phones to their relatives affected by the drought, not to mention the vital role the digital money transfers play in the local trade and money remittance.
eDahab, launched in 2014 by mobile network operator Somtel, has boomed in Somaliland. More than 10% of the region’s 3.8 million people are subscribers, and eDahab account numbers are displayed on walls and shop signs. Its usage ranges from livestock trade to commerce, university fees to electric bills. Money transfer operators continue to dominate international transactions, but in Somaliland they have lost ground to eDahab.
In response, eDahab is going international. After striking a deal with Dahabshiil Money Transfer, it promises to shake up the remittance business.
