Our Story

For a very long time, migrants and diaspora communities living in other African countries have been struggling to send or receive money across borders. Some challenges include very few options to transact across borders, bad currency exchange rates, high fees of up to 10%, and up to 3 days for transactions to be processed.

Hurupay is building Paypal for Africa - enabling families and friends across borders to stay financially connected through accessible instant and affordable cross-border payments. Users can deposit with mobile money or bank transfer, access other currencies at a fair exchange rate and send money instantly at a fraction of the fee of traditional banking systems.
