Mobicash has crossed the 500,000 monthly active mobile accounts mark up from the 25,000 monthly active mobile accounts in April 2015.
This 20 times increase in active users signifies the strength of the 2.5 million mobile accounts registered by Mobicash. The unprecedented growth over the past 8 months is due to more people being aware of the need for mobile accounts services, said a statement issued by the company.

Our strong 58,000 plus retailer network assists with our aim to improve lives by ensuring subscribers living in localities with limited formal banking services utilize Mobicash to avail the variety of financial services it offers. This milestone is another step towards our objective of bridging the prevalent divide between the banked and unbanked populace of Pakistan.” – Aniqa Afzal Sandhu, Head of Mobile Financial Services, Mobilink
