"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!"

"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."
