New Mobile Money Service Welcomed as a Tool for Financial Inclusion in Solomon Islands

The launch of a new mobile money service in the Solomon Islands, known as M-Selen, has the potential to herald in a new era of financial and digital inclusion in the South Pacific archipelago.

Launched in June 2023 by the country’s largest telecommunications provider, Our Telekom, with support from the UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and the Government of Australia, M-Selen aims to bring basic financial services to the fingertips of everyday Solomon Islanders.
