Flutterwave, Africa’s leading payment technology startup, has released its remittance service’s mobile app version of $end. This will make it easier and faster for people in the diaspora to send money back to Africa.
In December 2021, Flutterwave launched $end as a web app to help streamline remittances to Africans. The new mobile app, accessible on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, promises to improve customer experience by improving speed, transparency, and the ability to send user funds to their intended destination despite obstacles.
Nigerian musician Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, better known as WizKid, who has won a Grammy Award, became Flutterwave’s global ambassador right after the launch. He will help promote the product among Africans who live outside of Africa.
In addition to introducing the app, the payment firm has signed Tobi Amusan, the Nigerian-born 100m Hurdles Women’s World Record Holder, as an ambassador.
According to the startup, this decision was made owing to “their similarities in speed and resilience.”
