Vickie Remoe, a TV host, writer, and podcaster, has been named a brand ambassador for EziPaySL, a money transfer service that makes it easier for Sierra Leoneans in the Diaspora to send money.
Remoe will be included in EziPaySL’s digital advertising campaigns and will generate original content to engage with Sierra Leoneans living abroad who want to make a difference in their communities as part of this festive collaboration.
“An estimated $127 million is sent and received as remittances to and from Sierra Leone every year, but Sierra Leoneans pay way too much in transfer fees. I’m partnering with EziPaySL to spread the word that there is a cheaper, more convenient way to send money back home with the EzipaySL App,” said Remoe.
“Mobile money is already making it easier for Africans at home and in the Diaspora to transfer money. EziPaySL will transform the way we send money home to Sierra Leone.”
The EziPaySL App allows users to add money using their Mastercard and Visa cards, as well as send funds to anyone who has the EziPaySL App. Smartphone users can receive funds in two ways: through the App or straight to an Afrimoney or Orange Money account.
“Vickie is a trusted community leader both at home and in the diaspora, and we are thrilled to develop a relationship with her,” said EziPaySL, Managing Director, Raj Balani.
“This is an exciting time for our fintech startup. We will offer digital QR Codes to businesses and retailers; a swift, simple, and secure way to send and receive remote payments during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
EziPay is a new payment service that works with your preferred digital wallet or bank account to offer a convenient, safer and overall better payment experience.

EziPaySL is made possible by a digital effort backed by UBA and AI Technologies Limited (AIT Limited). This collaboration enables anyone in Sierra Leone to receive and make payments. EzeePay SL Limited and AIT Limited own the trademark Ezipay.
