Fidelity Bank in partnership with MTN MoMo has upgraded its Y’ello Save Account with a savings plan feature to encourage customers to adopt the habit of saving.

This can be done by simply dialing *170# and following the prompt.

Commenting on the initiative, Eli Hini, the CEO of Mobile Money Ltd, commended Fidelity Bank for the upgrade of Yello Save service noting it will encourage more people to adopt the savings culture and deepen financial inclusion. He said, “the Yello Save service has been widely accepted by MoMo customers and testimonials we have received since its launch is that Yello Save provides a convenient option for personal savings and investment. For business owners, it serves as an expedient option to save sales revenue received through MoMo.” We are very hopeful that the new feature will help customers achieve financial independence and ultimately help business owners expand their business whilst driving economic growth.
