The inspiration for SafariRemit came to our CEO Siyad Nur during his time as a Chartered Engineer (CEng), a job which saw him travel across various continents around the world, working on projects in sectors ranging from energy to mining to rail and roads. Without access to a cheap and simple money transfer service, it was always difficult and expensive to send money back to his family – with remittance companies operating in frustratingly slow, costly and antiquated ways.
Whether it was queuing at kiosks to transfer funds back home, or paying eye-watering fees to send your own money – Siyad could see that the current remittance system was broken, and urgently needed reimagining for the digital age. SafariRemit is the product of years of work to address and solve these problems, to help money senders across the world.
We are on a mission to make sending money abroad as easy, fair and hassle-free as it is within one country or currency.
For too long, transferring funds internationally has been an expensive, long-winded and inconvenient process – punishing those who live and love across national borders, sending money to friends and family, with high fees and long wait times.
SafariRemit exists to redress the balance, putting the power back into your hands, so you can make your money go wherever you want it to go – without having to leave your seat, let alone queue at the kiosk, or pay lots for the privilege.
