The TalkRemit journey
How it all started
Founded in 2016, our diverse team has used their experiences of migrant life and the issues with existing remittance services to build something that better serves migrant communities across the globe.
The ability to send money to family and friends worldwide has been around for many years, but it was previously an expensive and inconvenient process. Senders waiting in lengthy queues and incurring high charges while recipients waited days for their money to arrive. The idea behind TalkRemit’s international money transfer app was born!
We wanted to provide people with a better solution for sending money to loved ones abroad. We’re proud to have done that. Now we’re busy further improving our platform and creating additional financial products for the communities who most need them, to become a one-stop shop serving the needs of migrants around the world.
What we’ve built so far
TalkRemit is a hassle-free international money transfer app and remittance platform providing a fast, secure and low-cost way to send money abroad. The services are user-friendly, reliable and we get you the best value for transfers, no matter the currency. We keep fees low too - in fact, we seek to offer the lowest remittance fees on the market.
Our money transfer app is available in 17 sender countries and you can currently send money to loved ones in over 40 destinations worldwide. Browse our full list of sender and receiver countries here. Check this list regularly, as we are adding new countries all the time!
What we’re building: more than just a money transfer app
We want to help banked and unbanked migrants and their communities with all of their essential financial and banking needs. Not only do we seek to give people safe and convenient ways to transfer funds to loved ones across the globe, we also want to be their one-stop shop for everything banking.
The unbanked population currently stands at over 1.7 billion people, according to the World Bank.
Empowering the unbanked and underprivileged population
In today’s digital and interconnected world where we enjoy quick and seamless access to our funds and to related financial products, it seems unjust that a sizeable portion of society should suffer because financial institutions and services don’t meet their needs. TalkRemit aims to change all that.
We are building new services to give financial identity and freedom to the unbanked and the underprivileged. Our aim is to empower these people with equal access to useful financial services that wouldn’t otherwise be available to them.
“Sometimes when you’re treated unfairly, it makes you stronger and more determined. I admire that kind of strength. People who have it take a stand and put their blood and soul into what they believe.” - Michael Jackson
So what will the new TalkRemit look like? Well, we’re building better financial solutions for migrants and migrant communities all around the world - both those who already have banking and those who struggle to get the financial products and services they need.
Whoever you are, we’ll give you access to the financial services you really need, whether you’re moving, migrating or living without financial freedom. We want to be more than just a money transfer app - we want to be the one-stop financial solution for migrant communities around the world.
Manage all your financial needs from a single app
Not only will our all-in-one financial solution enable users to send money to loved ones abroad quickly, safely and affordable, it will also offer new financial services for those without the means to control their finances freely and securely, as well as those who need better bank solutions.
Spend, save, budget, make payments and get more from your hard-earned money.
Watch this space for TalkRemit’s new services. Breaking down barriers with a financial app that is inclusive for all - that’s our vision.
