Leading digital money transfer company WorldRemit partners with Midwest Forex Bureau to offer new pickup locations to support remittance growth in Uganda

New service will enable Uganda diaspora to send money home to two new cash pickup locations in the heart of Kampala

Kampala and London, 19th June 2018: Leading digital money transfer service WorldRemit has joined forces with Midwest Forex Bureau to support the increasing demand for money transfers to Uganda.

WorldRemit customers can now send money to two new Midwest Forex Bureau locations in the heart of Kampala’s central business district.

This new partnership will allow the Ugandan diaspora in over 50 countries to send remittances as easily as sending an instant message using the WorldRemit app or website.

WorldRemit’s mobile-first, digital model is more convenient as customers sending funds do not have to visit a bricks and mortar agent to make transfers, saving time and money. 

According to WorldRemit data, Ugandans are the most frequent senders of remittances to mobile money accounts globally — transferring funds on average 4 times a month, compared  to 3.5 times for their Kenyan neighbours.

Ivan Kanyali, Country Manager for Uganda at WorldRemit comments: “Through our new partnership with Midwest Forex Bureau, recipients have an even greater variety of cash payout locations across Kampala. WorldRemit looks forward to providing wider, more convenient choices of receiving money throughout major Ugandan cities.”
