“Since 2008, eWallie has been operating on small scale since its operational license was still in process by the Central Bank of Liberia until recently in September the government of Liberia through the Central Bank was able to grant its go-ahead operational license which will create the opportunity to give jobs to hundreds of Liberians in the electronic Fintech wallet payment company,” the Tama CEO emphasized.
