WorldRemit announced recently that they have partnered with JazzCash Mobile Money to boost money transfer services to Pakistan. The partnership, through instant mobile remittance, will enable over 9 million Pakistani expatriates currently living and working abroad to send money to their loved ones or friends in Pakistan.

The Global Business Development Director at WorldRemit, Mr. Bryce Currie, commenting on this partnership, said,

“WorldRemit is planning to facilitate more than 580,000 money transfers transactions to Pakistan every month. Our partnership with JazzCash Mobile Money will eliminate the hassle of waiting for several days to receive money from overseas. Now, WorldRemit customers can send money to their loved ones and friends in Pakistan with just a few clicks on their mobile phones. Any amount sent through this platform will be collected as Mobile Money by a Pakistani beneficiary on the same day.”

The Chief Digital & Financial Services Officer at Jazz, Mr. Aniqa Afzal Sandhu, also added,

“Remittances from overseas play an important role in the growth of Pakistan’s economy. According to the report released by the State Bank of Pakistan, Pakistani expatriates currently living and working abroad remitted more than $20 billion last year. By partnering with WorldRemit, we aim at making it easier for the locals who rely on financial support from abroad to receive money to run their households.”
