SIMBA, the upcoming African Fintech company is set to take a major step in fulfilling its mission to provide African immigrant communities with access to financial products, services and education with the kickoff of its weekly empowerment series.
The SIMBA empowerment series will encompass diverse public events, trainings, fairs, coupled with the provision of vital tools and information to facilitate and improve African immigrants’ access to financial services and related opportunities.
The kickoff of SIMBA’s empowerment series comes on the heels of the recent launch of its Visa Card that will ease money transfer services for African immigrants in the USA. The card is available upon completion of a simple application process and can be used to make usual purchases, paying bill as well as making fee free transfer of funds from SIMBA-to-SIMBA cards.
“SIMBA is structured to become the African diaspora Community Bank, so we decided to partner with community leaders and organizations to support weekly training programs that will address some of the major issues impacting our community, such as cybersecurity, job fairs, immigration, mental health, cultural integration, and more. SIMBA was created by us and for us, therefore, we shall prosper together,” says its Founder, Simon Tiemtore.
For Cameroonian born Thierry H. Ngoufan, CEO of STALLION GROUP, the co-organizer of the first empowerment seminar, and SIMBA Ambassador, cyber criminality is a serious matter: “ We are raising awareness on the need for the global community with emphasis on the African immigrants, to protect themselves against attacks on personal or business information, share tools and information that will protect immigrants , but also working on trainings that will open more doors and business opportunities to Africans on cybersecurity and related fields”
Founded by Simon Tiemtore, a West African Immigrant from Burkina Faso, SIMBA is positioned to provide a strong response to the multi-faceted challenges facing African immigrants when it comes to financial transactions. From money transfer amongst the immigrants to remittances, and a broad range of other fresh opportunities, Simba is willing to go the extra mile in ensuring that the doors to financial opportunities and freedom are open to African immigrants. With the SIMBA card, you can make purchases, pay bills, do withdrawals and more anywhere there is a visa network.
SIMBA is working on plans to unveil other services in its African Diaspora’s empowerment scheme.
