Since 2009 WorldRemit’s customers have been able to send money quickly, securely and cost-effectively from the developed world to emerging markets. Our online service has just gone from strength to strength in that respect. But we didn’t want to stop there.
We wanted to expand our services by helping customers transfer money from emerging market to an emerging market. And we started by offering our service in South Africa last year.
In the coming months, we’ll be offering a service in Rwanda and then expand into other sub- Saharan countries.
It’s all part of our future plan to offer far better all-round financial services in emerging markets: markets that are badly served at present. We have some exciting and innovative developments planned, so watch this space.
In the meantime, let’s focus on our excellent service from South Africa to Zimbabwe.
