Existing and new Tertiary Scholarship and Loans Service sponsored students will now be able to receive their allowances on Digicel My Cash following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding from both parties today.

Acting CEO of TSLS, Dr Hasmukh Lal says they welcome this partnership with Digicel to expand its service delivery through the use of digital solutions.

He says while planning to expand in digital solutions for the service delivery, it was a timely approach by Digicel to TSLS to have provisions of MyCash for the payment of allowance to students.

Lal says there has been a growing demand from students, mainly Digicel users, for TSLS to pay students allowances through this mobile wallet and this will enable students to purchase and pay bills using the My Cash app.

He adds there is a substantial number of students who are Digicel users on the TSLS system and this number is expected to increase as new students come on board.

Digicel Fiji CEO Farid Mohammed says this is a milestone achievement for them as they have been trying to get into this scheme for some time.

He says the My Cash system has seen an exponential growth on the back of this pandemic.

Mohammed says they have invested substantially in developing this product and the channel that supports this product.

He adds now they have more than 600 merchants where My Cash customers can use their mobile wallet to pay for goods and services.

Meanwhile, President of the University of Fiji Students Association Maca Ratabua thanked the two parties for hearing the students plea and recognising the issue at hand

She says this MOU will assist sponsored students get easy access to payment of bills and also the purchase of goods and services.
