International money transfer website WorldRemit and MTN have signed earlier this year a partnership agreement enabling WorldRemit’s users around the world to send money to MTN’s Mobile Money customers in Rwanda, Uganda and Zambia.

MTN Group Head of Mobile Financial Services says “the partnership makes sense for both companies, as WorldRemit and MTN share a disruptive approach to innovation and bring impactful services to our customers.

Together, we are now providing an instant, fully digital and very affordable solution to send international remittance to Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia.”

He highlights that “other countries will soon join the list of markets” covered by the partnership between WorldRemit and MTN Group.

As leading sender of remittances to 25 Mobile Money wallets worldwide, WorldRemit who already has users in more than 52 countries with 400,000 monthly transfers to more than 125 destinations, will surely boost MTN Money activity in the concerned countries.
