Explain your idea in details:
This is the platform that will allow smooth transaction between bank accounts holders and mobile money number account holders. It is mainly targeting the small medium businesses and marketeers. The users will have the priviledge of depositing their money into the mobile money accounts and then at their own time, transfer that money into their bank accounts on their own and Vis-vesa. Once the money is in their mobile money account, the user can decide either to forward that money into his/her bank account or remain their. The user can also decide whether to withdraw from bank account into the mobile money account or not. All this service will be done on mobile phone. This will help reducing traffic at banks as well as serving time. It also help SMEs to save. This service will be carried out through putting up secured mobile booths in strategic places. This service will allow individuals and businesses to pay for goods and services using their phones in the comfort of their homes. You will not need to go to your bank to make a cash deposit in your accounts, you can put that money in your mobile phone account and transfer that money to your bank accounts at your own time.

The drivers of the economy are SMEs and marketeers, but in many and all cases, marketeers have no serving facilities. This is because they find it insane to walk a 30minutes distance just to go and deposit $1. It doesn't make really make and sense. But this platform will them even to make a one dollar deposit into their mobile account number that will be put right in their localities. For instance, they will choose to be putting a dollar in their account per day, and only decide to transfer it into their bank account every monthend. This will be entirely decided on their own. By using this platform, many will know the value of saving and alleviate poverty in the long run. This platform will as well allow those without bank accounts to open the bank accounts with the bank of their choice. This platform will also allow the users to two types of serving. The long time saving which is their bank accounts and the Short time saving which is their mobile money account.
