Blockchain remittance app Minit Money has opened its first Southern African remittance corridor, enabling Zambians living in South Africa to easily and affordably send money home.

Minit Money is a mobile app that provides secure and reliable money transfers at affordable rates. It is available free to download from all the app stores.

Co-founder and CEO of Minit Money, Angus Brown, said: “We’re delighted to announce the launch of Minit Money’s ability to serve the Zambia diaspora community in South Africa. We have experienced significant growth in our existing corridors of Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, Cameroon, Senegal, Benin, Ivory Coast & Kenya and the Zambia launch marks our first foray into the Southern region.

South Africa and Zambia have a long history of cooperation and strong economic ties, driven primarily by the copper mining industry. Many Zambians have family members who have found work in South Africa’s economic hubs.

Minit Money’s launch in South Africa is set to create significant savings for users, improve sending speeds, and provide a seamless user experience for Zambians living in South Africa.
