ZSE listed digital company Cassava Smartech is getting ready to launch a Sasai remit agency network across the country to help disburse diaspora remittances, The Herald reports.
According to Cassava, plans to set up agents to disburse USD are underway as the fintech solutions plan to revive their wide cash disbursement network.
Speaking to the publication Cassava Smartech general manager in charge of international remittances, Mr Shephard Hondoyemoto said:
With that influx of people sending (remittances) via Sasai at zero percent to 2,5 percent, we are saying the most important thing is to go back to that model where we are covering every part of the country,
We will set up lots of agents in rural areas to work on remittances. We will put agents where people are and offer a service at arm’s length.
