"My first transfer of funds from the USA to Kenya went extremely well. Great customer service to handle a small issue on my side was handled with excellent service. I'll be using the App again, thank you."

US J Michael Smith • 2 months ago

"You were referred to me by an old customer of yours. Using your service she helped me send money to two recipients in Kenya and the money reached them within 20 minutes. It’s the first time I’ve found a money transfer company without parallel. You are direct, clear and well structured. Rest assured, I’ll send money through WorldRemit forever!"

Sweden Ernest Osore Ondusye • 9 months ago

"Thank you, WorldRemit. Encouraged by a Kenyan friend here, I used your services for the first time. I was a bit nervous, but I had to send money to someone in need. You've made it a simple system to use, with a most economical fee. I was both surprised and grateful that the transaction was made so speedily. So now I feel more confident in using WorldRemit in the future and will recommend it to others in the same situation."

Canada Betty • 11 months ago

"So happy to have used WorldRemit. Plus, it’s great they send messages via WhatsApp to tell me the status of my transactions. I sent to Kenya via M-Pesa. My recipient got the money immediately."
