Tingo (OTC: TMNA) and MICT (NASDAQ: MICT) today announced that Tingo Mobile, which is being wholly acquired by MICT with a scheduled completion date of Nov. 30, 2022, has launched its partnership with the All Farmers Association of Nigeria (“AFAN”) ahead of schedule. Through its recently disclosed trade deal with Tingo Mobile, AFAN has committed to deliver a minimum of 20 million additional subscribers, which would more than triple Tingo Mobile’s existing customer base of 9.3 million. Tingo Mobile also launched its pan-African partnership with leading global payments technology company, Visa, with the rollout a range of new products and services including Tingo Visa digital payment cards, a Tingo Mobile secure payment service and a Tingo Mobile Point of Sale merchant service. “We are honored to have both AFAN and Visa as our partners,” said Dozy Mmobuosi, Tingo founder and CEO. “It was only a small number of weeks ago that we announced our trade deal with AFAN, so to be in a position where we have launched our partnership with them today, ahead of schedule, is a huge achievement. We are particularly pleased we have been able to arrange both the AFAN and Visa partnership launches to coincide with National Farmers’ Day celebration, which has allowed us to support this important event on Nigeria’s agricultural sector’s calendar.”
