He added: “Our focus on Africa aimed at resolving some of the challenges in an environment that we live and understand better than our competitors. Using technology to resolve payments between African countries and markets. We are Africa-centric in the money Transfer ecosystem.”

“Our focus on Africa is resolving some of the challenges in an environment that we live and understand better than our competitors — using technology to resolve payments between African countries and markets. We are an Africa-centric in the money transfer ecosystem,” he said.
