Vodafone Fiji Limited CEO Ronald Prasad says the Vodafone M-PAiSA through international money transfer has grown from $2 million in pre-COVID-19 period per month to $10.5 million this month.

Prasad highlighted this during the launch the 3rd multi-disciplinary conference at Holiday Inn today.

He says this is an increase of 425% and they believe this is due to the pandemic.

Prasad says if it was not for M-PAiSA, many families would be deprived of receiving money because of the various lockdowns and restrictions still prevalent in many countries.
