Money Transfer

CASABLANCA, Morocco, September 28, 2017/ -- Morocco-based financial services company Wafacash (www.Wafacash.com) is scaling up operations with leading digital money transfer service WorldRemit (www.WorldRemit.com) to offer instant money transfers across West and Central Africa.

The companies already work together in Morocco and Senegal, but will expand into Cameroon, Benin, Burkina Faso, Niger and Cote D’Ivoire before the end of the year.

The new service will let WorldRemit customers in over 50 countries transfer money as easily as sending an instant message, using the app or website.

WorldRemit’s digital, mobile-first model significantly improves security and compliance standards. Senders no longer need to visit a bricks and mortar agent, which can be inconvenient and time consuming - often forcing hard working migrants to take time off work to stand in line.

Wafacash is a subsidiary of Attijariwafa Bank, one of Africa’s major banking institutions. It has a reputation for excellent customer service, and ambitious regional growth plans. The company currently has pay-out points at Wafacash offices and Attijariwafa Bank branches and agents, enabling customers to pick up funds quickly and conveniently.
