The conference saw training modules for Liberian tellers on new aspects of the MoneyGram system and further equipped them with skills to ensure heighted compliance.
Speaking on the sidelines of the conference, Mr. Leslie Akraka, the business development manager for MoneyGram in the - Anglophone West Africa region, noted: “We are proud of our business in Liberia. We can confidently say we offer an excellent remittance service to and from Liberia. For instance, today, any Liberian in the US can send money to their loved ones in Liberia at affordable fees from any Walmart or cvs in the USA. They can also do this online from the USA or use the MoneyGram app.”
MoneyGram is a leading remittance company globally and in Liberia. MoneyGram services are available in Liberia from Access Bank, Afriland Bank, Ecobank, Global Bank, GN Bank, Guarantee Trust Bank (GT Bank), International Bank (IB), Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI) & United Bank for Africa (UBA).
