It's easy to send money to your friends and family - 24/7, almost anywhere in the world.
Western Union makes it easy for consumers and businesses in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) to quickly, reliably and conveniently transfer funds, send bill payments, or pre-pay for phone, Internet or credit card services using our proprietary money transfer network. We have more than 800 employees working across the region. The staff is responsible for a network of more than 278,000 Agent locations spanning over 120 countries and territories.
In Africa, Western Union operates through a network of more than 14,600 Agents in over 49 countries. Our cooperations in Africa ensure that money transfer services and products reach individuals, communities and families in even the remotest areas. With the vast African Diasporas in the US and Europe, this service is essential to meet the needs of Africans across the world.
The cooperations in Africa aim at winning the best systems, processes and technology to ensure reliability and reach. Africa is a growing economy in the global market and such easily accessible services and product offerings are essential to competing in this space.
We continue to look for ways to expand our business and services based on the needs of consumers in the region.
