Batelco general manager enterprise Abderrahmane Mounir was quoted by Zawya as saying: “bwallet, the first of its kind in Bahrain to provide peer-to-peer money transfer, continues to grow in strength by adding value to all mobile users in the financial industry within the kingdom.

“The growing customer base has given us the opportunity to scale up and take bwallet to the next level by leveraging on the peer-to-peer service and develop international services whereby any mobile user can send funds and mobile prepaid top-ups to their family members and friends globally.”
