WorldRemit Introduces Mobile Money Transfers to Burundi

The ‘WhatsApp of money’ partners with EcoCash mobile wallet“93% of adults in Burundi are unbanked, severely limiting financial security, job prospects and economic freedom. Mobile Money services such as EcoCash enable people to access financial services through their mobile phones, making the ‘unbanked’ for the very first time the ‘mobile banked’.Our partnership with EcoCash means that people will no longer have to send remittances through illegal channels or pay high fees for cash to be picked up at inconvenient agent locations. Burundians can now receive money transfers straight to their mobile phones, just like an instant message.”World Bank - Global Findex Database 2014GSMA -2014 state of the industry reportAnnual Remittances Data 2014
