Mukuru is a financial services company that helps people move money around Africa, through a variety of platforms with the goal to simplify the process of sending and receiving money across borders.


Mukuru was launched in the mid-2000s. As Zimbabwe went through hyperinflation, Mukuru enabled customers in the diaspora to send fuel & grocery vouchers back home via SMS. [1] Eventually Mukuru started offering money remittances.
