Oparinde Babatunde, Yellow Card Director of Operations, says one of the biggest challenges in Africa is the difficulty in money transfer. Stating that it is easier to send money from Nigeria to the US than it is to send money from Nigeria to Ghana or Zambia. And in the instances where it is possible, it is usually through USD.

"Yellow Pay simplifies money transfer between African countries by building a solution that understands the way Africans already interact with financial products. We've managed to simplify it further by reducing costs and waiting time of remittance across the continent compared to traditional money transfer rails. With Yellow Pay, Africans can send money across borders using their phones," he says.

Oparinde adds, "The people that will benefit from Yellow Pay the most are the unbanked and underserved people living in peri-urban areas and rural parts of the continent. They usually do not meet the requirements to open a dollar account with banks and are cut off completely, and yellow Pay will service this market".
