Attijariwafa Bank Expands Payout Services across Morocco

As announced, the Morocco-based bank, Attijariwafa is set to utilize the RippleNet technology to expand its payout services across the nation of Morocco.

Through this partnership, about 30 million bank account owners in Morocco will be able to receive inbound payments directly to their bank accounts. Likewise, customers of the Thunes payment platform can now send payments to bank accounts in Morocco.

Precisely, the development will enable seamless bank-to-bank payments to all bank accounts in Morocco. 

Per the announcement, "the partnership with Attijariwafa bank aligns with Thunes’ commitment to building more efficient and affordable payments services around the world, a financial access mission the company is undertaking in collaboration with the World Economic Forum (WEF)."

Therefore the fresh partnership is strategic, considering that Morocco is the third largest remittance receiver in Africa. Notably, Nigeria is Africa's largest remittance receiver followed by Egypt. 

With Morocco's friendly regulatory framework and large diaspora, Thunes payments company sees the African nation as a ripe ground to foster digital payment services. 

Importantly, the synergy between parties will introduce an easier, less costly, and faster channel for Moroccans to carry out internal and external payments. Therefore, "it is a major improvement for customers that need to make regular cross-border payments, and a significant milestone for Attijariwafa bank network expansion in North Africa," Asma Ben Gamra, VP of Network Development, MENA, at Thunes, said.
