“We are delighted to announce that we are partnered with leading banks in Nigeria including Access Bank, EcoBank, First Bank, United Bank for Africa, GT Bank, Fidelity Bank, Polaris Bank, Union Bank of Nigeria, Zenith Bank and others soon to come offering our clients nearly 3000 locations for money collection across Nigeria.”
“At the heart of our mission is the drive to provide customers with the means to send money to friends, family and loved ones in the fastest and most cost-effective way. I am really excited about this greatly expanded network of partners as it provides more convenience and options for our customers in Nigeria.”
