Access Forex, freshly approved by the RBZ, showed us around its booth ZITF2022


Earlier this week we reported that Access Forex had obtained the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) domestic recovery approval (city to city) remittances. During our trips to the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF2022), we had the chance to speak to Shingai J. Koti, Director of Marketing at Access Forex. She was also kind enough to show us around their booth at ZITF2022. Additionally, Access Forex launched its mobile app at ZITF2022 on iOS and Android.

For those who might be wondering, Access Forex charges 3% for domestic remittances and 8.5% for international money transfers. This puts them in and around what the rest of the competition charges on both fronts.
