There is an increasing sense of déjà vu in recent weeks when it comes to the words ‘TerraPay’ and ‘partnership’. But once again, TerraPay has entered into a new partnership, this time with the digital platform Nequi.
To further expand on the feeling of déjà vu, the partnership is focused on transforming remittances in Colombia. TerraPay recently partnered with Bancolombia to maximise the entry of money in Colombia. Bancolombia originally developed Nequi to be the first digital-only bank in the country and to target what they referred to as “banking sceptics.”.
Transforming remittances in Colombia
The partnership between the two companies is designed to transform remittances for Nequi’s 17.5m customers. This partnership will open the ability for Colombians to receive remittances from their relatives and friends in more than 200 countries using only one connection. Underpinned by TerraPay’s payments technology, Nequi users will have access to an easy-to-use financial app, without long queues, long waiting times, secure experience and without any additional fees for the beneficiary.
The partnership brings together the shared values of both companies, helping people manage their money efficiently and achieve their financial goals while also paving the way for financial inclusion. Nequi’s financial experience along with TerraPay’s digital payment solutions will ensure more people can gain better access to financial products and services and greater autonomy over their money. Using the Nequi app, users will have immediate access to manage the remittances they receive.
Ambar Sur, CEO and Co-Founder at TerraPay, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Nequi who share a desire to guarantee that Colombians can receive remittances from family and friends across the world in an easy, secure way. We both understand the need to improve the experience every person has with accessing their money and making transactions. Our aim will be to ensure users of the Nequi app have affordable access to traditional cross-border payments or remittances channels for many years to come and feel financially empowered.”
María del Pilar Correa, CPO of Nequi, added: “This partnership will allow us to transform the way we deliver remittances and further empower Colombians to better manage their money and save for a brighter future. After receiving their remittance in Nequi, users can use the app to send money to other people, make digital and physical payments, organise their finances, save, and much more.
