Zeemoney is pleased to announce that ahead of starting operations in Barbados, it has started recruitment of local staff.
Zeepay has partnered with the Barbados-based Global Integrated Fintech Solutions (GIFTS) to offer Barbadians a new service known as Zeemoney, into mobile financial services that will make it easy for the Caribbean diaspora to remit money back home digitally from the 200 corridors to mobile wallets, bank accounts, and visa/master cards.
Zeemoney is a sub-digital brand of Zeepay, with a registered presence in Grenada, Jamaica, Guyana, and Barbados.
Zeemoney is positioning itself to act as a bridge between Africa and the people of the Caribbean by making it easier for individuals to receive and send funds to friends and family abroad across 200 corridors globally.
Currently, Barbados alone receives about US$216 million anticipated growth through this arrangement.
Zeemoney will open the country for ease of receipt of international remittances and help improve last-mile access, evidenced in the long queue experience during collection.
In an interview with the press the Chairperson of the Board of Zeemoney Barbados and Chair of Zeepay JV UK mentioned that since her parents visited Barbados in 1997, it has been a heartfelt desire of hers to visit, and is excited that Zeepay are now in Barbados as this is a historic moment by putting this relationship on a formal footing.
I am looking forward to a long-lasting and viable partnership and what Zeemoney will contribute to the future growth of this island Andrew Takyi-Appiah, Managing Director Zeepay stated “in the Caribbean, our strategy remains the same, that is to hire local staff and develop for growth.
By doing so, harnessing local talent and ensuring that the business remains local.
