Chipper Cash, Africa’s fastest-growing fintech, was founded in 2018 by Ham Seunjogi and Majid Moujaled on the idea that moving money across the continent should be transparent, instant, and trouble-free.
As we continue our march towards becoming the bridge between the African diaspora, their families, and communities, we believe that:
To truly serve Africa, you must go beyond the borders of Africa.
Today, our network is widely available across continents (recently launched in the UK) and eight African countries, including South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania, Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda, and Kenya.
So, we’re excited to announce that we’re taking a massive step by launching Chipper Cash in the United States, home to millions of Africans, and the largest remittance corridor into African countries today. Setting up a presence in the United States is part of our mission of increasing access to financial services in Africa.
Multiple international award-winning musician Burna Boy joins us as a global brand ambassador to announce our launch in the United States and the integration of Chipper Cash to Twitter Tips as an option for emerging African creators and thought leaders to receive support on Twitter – via money.
Burna Boy is a strong voice for the African youth. Plus, he’s passionate about bringing African culture to the world through his music.
Why does all this matter?
For most African diaspora, sending money to their loved ones can sometimes be expensive and frustrating, exemplified by hidden charges and a never-ending chain of money agents.
Sending money into and across the continent should be affordable, easy, and secure. To that end, the Chipper Cash mobile app will enable instant peer-to-peer (P2P) payments from the US to 8 countries in Africa and the UK.
And it gets better—payments from the US to Nigeria are free.
All you need to get going is to download our app (available on IOS and Android) and securely add funds from your bank account. You can start sending money or transacting with other Chipper customers across Africa and the United Kingdom free and instantly.
