Vodafone is to expand the reach of its M-Pesa mobile money platform by participating in a remittance hub for cross-border cash transfers to 35 countries.
"M-Pesa ... is currently available in ... India ...".
Not true. I actually called Vodafone to inquire about M-Paisa and the CSR told me it wasn't available. Apparently, Vodafone launched a pilot of M-Paisa - M-Pesa's equivalent in India - in one Indian state (Rajasthan), pulled out of it, and never launched
the service anywhere else in India subsequently.
