“This is great news for all current and future SPENN users. We are adding remittance, which is in great demand and a huge global market, as a SPENN service. This will increase the attractiveness of the SPENN app, and it will generate revenue for SPENN,” says Jens Glaso, CEO of SPENN Technology.
According to the agreement between the two parties, SPENN Technology will receive 70 per cent of all revenues generated through this partnership.
Spoko is a fast-growing payments company providing instant international money transfers worldwide, targeting the 1.7 billion unbanked consumer market with mobile phones but no bank accounts. This is, of course, the same market SPENN is targeting with a goal of financial inclusion.
Established in 2019, Spoko has more than 850,000 customers, of which 65 per cent are in Nigeria and Ukraine. Being one of the few remaining international money transfer companies in the war-ridden Ukraine, Spoko has decided to offer free money transfer to all Ukrainians.
Spoko is fully owned by the Swedish company Global Direct Partners.
“We are excited to partner with SPENN to get access to more African markets. We consider ourselves a perfect match with SPENN, as we can offer them a new service and SPENN can help us to expand our customer base,“ says Global Direct Partner owner Anders Holmstedt.
“This partnership opens new revenue streams for SPENN. We have been keen on entering the remittance market for some time, and we believe partnering with Spoko is a great way of doing it. Diaspora transfers to Africa are very expensive, and it is our goal to offer instant transfers to SPENN at competitive prices,” says Glaso.
