Airtel Money, Send & Receive Cash Across Borders

Airtel Money now offers a free service for sending and receiving money internationally. This service is beneficial as it helps you avoid the currency exchange fees typically incurred when converting money in a foreign country.

According to a report from the Central Bank of Kenya, remittances to Kenya increased by 8.34%, reaching $4.027 billion in 2022. This figure is significant, almost rivaling earnings from key sectors like tourism, tea, and horticulture, which generated $5.77 billion.
