Mobile money has proved to be the most important alternative to cash. In the coming years, it will create an opportunity to extend formal financial services to people who lack access to traditional banks as this will be the new normal. Mobile money services are designed for individuals, businesses and others.
The growing needs of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have provided mobile money providers a chance to strengthen their interest with the payment-as-a platform, involving vast numbers of financial institutions providing mobile money users with a range of third-party services.
Payments-as-a-platform providers provide plug-and-play access to mobile money services through APIs and flexible IT solutions.

The move to a platform-based approach would allow SMEs to turn to mobile money applications in order to make money transfer more sustainable.
