  • Calpian, Inc. (CLPI) Via Money-on-Mobile Partnership Finds Far-Reaching Opportunity In Indian Market 0 comments
    Oct 1, 2013 6:00 PM | about stocks: CLPI

    Calpian is based in the heart of Texas in Dallas, but has discovered a unique opportunity more than 8,000 miles away in India. The company's Money-on-Mobile prepaid payment solution caters to the underserved Indian consumer population, the majority of which do not have access to bank accounts or traditional forms of credit.

    In fact, according to a 2012 study by MasterCard Worldwide, less than half of India's population has a bank account, though mobile penetration is more than 50 percent and continues to grow at a rapid pace. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India reports that there are 903.7 million cell phone subscribers in India, with 9.9 million new subscribers signing up each month.

    This gap between the underbanked population and those with mobile phone access creates a vast opportunity for market penetration for Money-on-Mobile, which has more than 32.5 million unique phone number customers to-date, and more than 118,000 retail partners offering the payment service.

    Money-on-Mobile provides Indian consumers a safe, secure and fast way to transfer money to friends and family even in remote areas. The technology also gives them easy and immediate access to funds needed to pay bills, a vital service especially for Indians living in rural areas who generally have to make time consuming and expensive trips into the city to make payments in person.

    Calpian in April 2012 acquired significant ownership of Mumbai-based Money-on-Mobile via newly formed Digital Payments Processing Ltd. (DPPL). Working with Money-on-Mobile, DPPL is the customer face for the store-valued mobile payment service.
