Ireland-based fintech Pipit Global has teamed with Pan-African fintech Cellulant to provide a fast way for Africans in the EU and UK to send cash to Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Mali, Senegal, and Ghana.

According to the press release, the partnership between Cellulant and Pipit means that Africans in the UK and EU from any of the listed African countries can send cash home, top-up an e-wallet, send money to a bank account and pay bills for their families. They can also pay for an ecommerce order and have the goods delivered in Africa.

In the UK, migrant workers from Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Mali, Senegal, and Ghana can access the Pipit platform through the PayPoint network of more than 28,000 cash acceptance points across the UK; and 35,000 points across the Western EU countries.

The partnership also brings lower-cost remittance within the African continent with the addition of 620,000 cash collection points in Nigeria, doubling the Pipit global footprint to 1.1 million collection points.
