JUBA, 03 March 2015 [Gurtong]-The 22 year old, Lual Michael Mayen in an interview with Gurtong at Logali House in Jube said that he will make the mobile money transfer service a success in South Sudan because it is effective and a convenient way of sending and receiving money through network providers.
He said the ‘Bank it System’ similar to mobile phone money transfer systems used in East African countries namely Uganda and Kenya will help South Sudanese in reducing queuing at the banks while sending and receiving money.
“Bank it system, is very cheap and it is for everyone, educated and uneducated, because everyone is using a phone,” said Mayen.
Mayen said with everybody owning a mobile phone, communication has been made easy just like how he intends to make the money transfer service significant to the people.
“Mobile phones are so good because we always move with them and they are affordable to have thus can make a banking system.”
The software engineer students told Gurtong that his software for South Sudan Mobile Money will be similar to that of M-Pesa in Kenya, and MTN mobile money M-Sente in Uganda, but with different codes and features.
He also stated that a Smartphone application called “Its South Sudan App” is being finalized, the app will help foreigners and tourists find the most suitable hotels in Juba.
The software engineering student said that he thought of the idea in 2013 and has since worked towards achieving that goal.
Mayen said the launch is expected to be this year after all the testing and the necessary requirements are met.
“We shall be having the testing of the system on Friday and Saturday in Juba” he told Gurtong Tuesday.
