Mondato is an international value transfer portal. We offer a consumer search function to enable people to find options for money transfer (and eventually other forms of value transfer such as airtime and bill payment) that best suit their needs.
Mondato is also a business-focused knowledge source for entrepreneurs, businesspeople, investors, analysts, and others who need to stay on top of the industry from the perspectives of mobile operators, banking and financial service providers, regulators, NGOs, and more.
