Uganda is one of Africa’s testaments to what mobile money has done for business in Africa. A country that originally depended on the banking system for its money handling and movement needs but was often disappointed due to long queues and long hours the money would take to be delivered, often slowing down transactions and some even turning out unsuccessful.
