What is a mobile top-up in Rwanda?

There are more than 8 million prepaid mobile phones in Rwanda. Every prepaid phone needs airtime, credit or talktime before it can be used to make calls, send texts and access online services. When that airtime runs out, it must be topped up, often from a local store, which is not always convenient.

At WorldRemit, you can send a top-up to Rwanda from more than 145 countries around the world. That makes it easy to stay in touch with family and friends living, working or travelling in Rwanda.
