Summary

What we do

Mukuru helps you move money around Africa. Whether you are sending cash for instant collection or topping up a bank account or mobile wallet it has never been easier. We use the latest mobile and web-based technologies to give you the best experience possible. But that’s just half the story. To really understand us, you need to know the “why” behind all we do.

We know that every one of our customers has a story. Just like we do. So whether they are sending money for school fees, hospital bills, rent or groceries, we are passionate about making that story end well.

It is this, the opportunity to enrich the lives of Africa's people by helping family, friends and loved ones stay connected, that motivates us to improve, to do more and to reach further. To us a remittance is more than money. It represents the love, care and hard work of the sender and can be a lifeline, an opportunity or even a celebration to the recipient.

Our Values

  • World Class Service - It sets us apart from the competition.
  • Innovation and Creativity - If we don't have it, we'll build it.
  • Growth Through Learning - It's about progress.
  • A Sense of Family - We are all in it together.
  • Integrity - We're just down-to-earth, honest people.
  • Passion in Work and Play - It's about giving everything.

Our Hiring Process

We a close knit bunch so we place a lot of emphasis in the hiring process as we grow our family.
