“We are incredibly proud to be Botswana’s first International Money Transfer service delivered by a mobile money operator and more especially to expand our International remittance footprint, further revolutionising the mobile financial space in Botswana. During these changing times of restricted movement and halted international travel, being able to send and receive money to/from other countries in a convenient manner is needed more than ever.

We continue to explore additional corridors that will give our customers increased access to their family and friends in Africa and the rest of the world” Said Director / CEO Orange Money, Seabelo Pilane,
