WorldRemit part­ners Le­bara on mo­bile money trans­fer to Africa

Financial Nigeria Magazine - - Finance -

Le­bara and WorldRemit, two lead­ing brands serv­ing international res­i­dents, have en­tered into a strate­gic partnership mak­ing WorldRemit the exclusive global money trans­fer part­ner of Le­bara, in­clud­ing trans­fers to over 40 African countries.

The deal al­lows over three mil­lion Le­bara Mo­bile and Le­bara Money users to use WorldRemit's dig­i­tal money trans­fer ser­vice seam­lessly, di­rectly from the Le­bara app and web­site. With more than half of WorldRemit's trans­fers now go­ing to Africa, this partnership will sup­port the com­pany's plan to serve five mil­lion cus­tomers con­nected to the con­ti­nent by 2020.

Le­bara cus­tomers liv­ing in the UK, France, Ger­many, Spain, Den­mark and Nether­lands will ben­e­fit from WorldRemit's ex­ten­sive pay­out net­work in over 145 countries. This will pro­vide a more con­ve­nient and lower cost al­ter­na­tive to the 90 per­cent of mi­grants who still send money through off­line routes.
