Mula: Digital Service for ECG Prepaid Power Launches in Ghana
Cellulant, a multinational payments company has launched Mula, a payments platform that has revolutionised payments in Ghana by providing the first digital payments service for ECG prepaid.
Before the launch of the service, ECG customers needed to visit an agent nearby their home to buy power credit. This experience proved difficult and inconveniencing customers when power credit would run out sometimes in the middle of the night with no agent available to provide more credit.
This new service, “Mula” has completely removed the need for the worry, stress and inconvenience by providing the ability to buy credit on their phone from any of their mobile money wallets.

“Today customers are mobile and are always looking for better ways to integrate their daily activities. With the launch of Mula we aim to provide a better way for customers in Ghana to make payments.,” says Mr Albert Ngumba, Country Manager for Cellular Ghana. “We aim to transform how customers make payments in this country, providing solutions that are relevant to our customer’s daily lives. Mula is a secure, simple and convenient alternative for customers to pay their bills from their phones.”
Mula was released to the public on Tuesday, 22nd August 2017 in Accra. Currently, customers can not only buy ECG prepaid power credit, but they can buy airtime from any of the networks, pay for DStv and GOtv subscriptions using their wallet of choices such as MTN Money, Tigo Cash and Airtel Money. Vodafone Cash will be available within the month.
