Unaitas connects to SimbaPay for Instant Diaspora Remittances

Unaitas (one of Kenya’s largest SACCOs) has today partnered with SimbaPay, a digital money transfer provider, to offer international money transfer services to the SACCO’s customers in the Diaspora.

Unaitas accounts receiving the funds will be credited instantly. The service is currently available for the UK/EU-Kenya remittance corridors only and will be expanded to cover more countries soon.

Diaspora Banking

Unaitas has created a dedicated Diaspora Banking section on its website, www.unaitas.com.

According to the World Bank, Kenyans abroad currently send home an estimated $2.5 billion annually making remittances Kenya’s largest foreign exchange earner.


How the Service Works

To send money via SimbaPay, Kenyans living in Europe with a bank account, debit card or credit card simply need to download the SimbaPay app from the Apple AppStore or Google Play and proceed to make money transfers straight from any mobile phone, tablet or computer.


For ease of use, Unaitas has been added to the list of Pay Bill business on SimbaPay. This eliminates the need for customers having to remember the Unaitas Pay Bill business numbers.


Using the SimbaPay app, users can instantly pay hundreds of Pay Bill registered businesses and organisations.


Award Winning

In September 2015, SimbaPay was named the overall winner at the just concluded Demo Africa 2015.

SimbaPay also launched free, instant transfers to all Nigerian banks in May 2015. In June it became the first platform in the world to allow Kenyans living abroad to make M-Pesa PayBill payments and continues to disrupt the cross-border remittance industry with its focus on speed and convenience.

The SimbaPay app can be downloaded for free from the Apple or Android app stores.
