Lamin Hydara (Coventry, UK)

How to use Baluwo to pre-pay basic essentials in Africa

′I use Baluwo to provide my family in Brikama with rice, sugar and oil each month. It also helps me to control electricity prepayments, since Baluwo manages the purchase directly from my balance. It was actually really hard to control this before.′

Alieu Baldeh (Almeria, Spain)

How to use Baluwo to pre-pay basic essentials in Africa

′Now that my village, Garawoll, is covered by Baluwo, my mind is at ease knowing that my family will not run short of food in the middle of the month. When she needs something, my wife receives a Baluwo PIN directly on her telephone that she can use at a nearby store to collect food.′

Kutubo Kamara (Hamburg, Germany)

How to use Baluwo to pre-pay basic essentials in Africa

′I′m very satisfied with Baluwo and use it every time my wife has no power or mobile minutes, and also to buy food that she can collect soon after. It’s really quick. Sending money home was really difficult because of all the paperwork required by anti-money laundering laws and the exorbitant transfer fees usually charged. But Baluwo is very different.′
