West­ern Union and KCB in joint mo­bile money trans­fer

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

KCB and West­ern Union have launched a mo­bile money trans­fer ser­vice that al­lows KCB cus­tomers to trans­fer money di­rectly from abroad via West­ern Union. “We be­lieve that lever­ag­ing re­la­tion­ships with trusted brands like West­ern Union is an im­por­tant way to fa­cil­i­tate ac­cess to bank­ing ser­vices for both banked and non-banked con­sumers,” KCB head of dig­i­tal fi­nan­cial ser­vices and mo­bile pay­ments Ed­ward Ndichu said. KCB cus­tomers can ac­cess the plat­form by di­al­ing *522# on their mo­bile phones, and fol­low­ing the prompt. Cus­tomers can col­lect money sent via the ser­vice from all KCB branches, or in­struct the bank to di­rect the money into their ac­counts, the len­der said yes­ter­day. “We are pleased to of­fer even more ways for con­sumers to re­ceive funds,” West­ern Union re­gional vice pres­i­dent of South­ern and East Africa Richard Mal­colm said.
