Islamabad, August 30, 2016 (PPI-OT):JazzCash has announced that it now serves more than one million monthly active mobile accounts, a new milestone for the mobile financial services provider. JazzCash has seen its overall mobile account user base grow significantly in the past few months making it the fastest growing mobile money operator in Pakistan.
Congratulating his team at a ceremony held to mark this milestone, Aamir Ibrahim, CEO – Mobilink and Warid, said: We continue to strive in building a digital company and ensuring that products and services we offer exceed our customers’ expectations. Our goal is to provide financial and digital inclusion for every Pakistani and I am excited about the trust JazzCash’s customers put in our financial services. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for trusting us for their various financial needs and performing financial transactions amounting to billions of rupees every month.
The unprecedented growth is owed to an effective strategy in place as a result of which customers across the country are rapidly adapting JazzCash Mobile Accounts to fulfil their daily financial needs.

These customers are now accessing their Mobile Accounts through their mobile phones where they can deposit and withdraw funds through more than 65,000 JazzCash Agents across the country.

Aniqa Afzal Sandhu, VP – Digital and Mobile Financial Solutions – Mobilink, said: I am pleased to share that we are on track to enable our largely unbanked population with a complete financial solution that is mobile network agnostic and allows them to access basic financial services as well as advanced solutions such as the Mobile App conveniently through their mobile phone.
Adding another half a million monthly active mobile accounts in just the past eight months shows how our strategy to digitize our customer needs is coming into effect. We will continue to introduce the most innovative financial services in the near future for our customers.
