INTERNATIONAL money transfer provider, Hello Paisa, part of the Hello Group, continues to disrupt the African remittance market by running a winter promotion that runs until 12 September 2016, allowing customers the ability to send money from South Africa to Zimbabwe at a zero transaction fee.
Hello Paisa survey data shows that the typical Zimbabwean customer earns less than R3 000 a month and tends to send more money home over the winter months when their children and parents need warm clothing, blankets and face higher electricity costs due to the increased use of heaters.
Low cost money transfer has a profoundly positive impact on the families of economic migrants and allows Hello Group to deliver on its mission to transform the lives of marginalised communities through technology. Offering free money transfer over the winter months to the over 60,000 Zimbabwean customers who have already signed up for the service is testament to the Group’s commitment. Hello Group has a number of high quality partners in Zimbabwe including Telecash, Cabs Bank, TM Stores and Zimpost.
Hello Paisa is aware of the current cash shortage faced by Zimbabwe and assures customers that they are working closely with all partners to resolve any issues that may arise. – Hello Group
