WorldRemit partners Lebara on mobile money transfer to Africa
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.
