Tunisian fintech My Easy Transfer has raised $423,000 from 216 Capital, a venture capital firm investing in early-stage startups in Tunisia. The funding will help the company simplify money transfer services from the Tunisian diaspora to their families inside the country and expand its services to include mobile top-ups, bill payments, and more.
Founded in 2022 by Ismaïl Khenissi and Jabrane Khenissi, My Easy Transfer aims to make money transfers faster, more convenient, and more affordable for Tunisians living abroad. The company’s platform allows users to send money to Tunisia from their smartphones using a variety of payment methods, including credit and debit cards, bank transfers, and mobile wallets.
My Easy Transfer also plans to expand its services to include bill payments, mobile top-ups, and other financial transactions. The company aims to become the first payment Super App for the Tunisian diaspora, offering a one-stop shop for all their financial needs.
“My Easy Transfer represents a huge potential, capable of transforming the financial transfer landscape and offering faster, more economical solutions for users,” said Dhekra Khelifi, Partner at 216 Capital.
“We want to offer every Tunisian living abroad the possibility of managing all their financial transactions to Tunisia from their smartphone with our platform,” said Ismail Khenissi, co-founder of My Easy Transfer.
The funding from 216 Capital will help My Easy Transfer achieve its growth goals. The company plans to use the funds to invest in its technology, expand its team, and market its services to a wider audience.
My Easy Transfer is well-positioned to capitalize on the growing demand for digital financial services in Tunisia. The country has a large diaspora, with over 1 million Tunisians living abroad. These Tunisians send billions of dollars back to Tunisia each year, and they are increasingly looking for convenient and affordable ways to do so.
My Easy Transfer is helping to meet this demand by offering a simple, affordable, and secure way to send money to Tunisia. The company is also expanding its services to include other financial transactions, such as bill payments and mobile top-ups. This makes My Easy Transfer a one-stop shop for Tunisians living abroad to manage their financial needs.
