Harare- EcoCash, Cassava Smartech Zimbabwe’s mobile money Fintech business, has partnered with Cassava Fintech South Africa to provide an enhanced cross-border money transfer service from South Africa to Zimbabwe.

Announcing the launch of the service, Cassava Fintech International Group CEO Darlington Mandivenga said he was confident the service would do very well and meet a growing customer need across the continent.

He said Zimbabweans living in South Africa would now be able to send money to recipients in Zimbabwe by initiating a money transfer request through a few simple steps.

“They can now simply log onto the EcoCash SA App, or visit to sign up and start sending money,” Mandivenga said.

“Customers can also visit any of the over 160 000 partner outlets in South Africa to send money home.

“The money will immediately reflect in their EcoCash FCA mobile wallet, and an SMS confirmation sent to the recipient of the funds in Zimbabwe.”

He said every EcoCash line in Zimbabwe already included an FCA wallet on its existing menu from which a customer can send money to another customer’s FCA wallet locally.
