The introduction of mobile money services in Ghana has brought a great improvement to the finance industry in Ghana.

It has discarded some traditional ways of transacting money, making life much easier.

Most people only know how to transfer MTN Mobile money using the mobile money code *170#.

However, there are other useful methods you can use to send money to loved ones, buy airtime and pay bills on MTN MoMo.
