Digital money transfer service firm WorldRemit has collaborated with Wari Group to introduce instant money transfers to Senegal.

The newly launched service enables customers to transfer money to more than 50 countries worldwide.

Users can transfer funds as easily as sending an instant message through mobile app or website.

WorldRemit claims that its money transfer service improves security and compliance standards on the send side.

In addition, senders need not visit a bricks and mortar agent which can be inconvenient and time consuming.

WorldRemit co-founder Catherine Wines said: “Our partnership with Wari will enable the half a million-strong Senegalese diaspora to send money instantly from over 50 countries to thousands of locations.
