EXCLUSIVE: Njugush lands brand ambassadorial gig

Fintech Startup LemFi, a cross-border payment solution that enables the diaspora community to send and receive money, has chosen Timothy Kimani Ndegwa popularly known as Njugush as its brand ambassador.

Speaking exclusively to Nairobi News on June 10, 2023 at LemFi offices in Nairobi, the renowned comedian shared his excitement about the Fintech Startup which launched its operation in Kenya a few days ago.

“This is a good initiative. Imagine you will be able to transfer funds directly into bank accounts and mobile money wallets with zero fees. This is why I say it’s a good initiative,” Njugush told Nairobi News.

Speaking about the unique feature of the Fintech Startup, Njugush said that one is able to send or receive money on the go.

LemFi, a fintech startup established in 2020, focuses on providing cross-border payment solutions for the diaspora community.

Its platform enables Kenyans living abroad to conveniently send and receive money back home.

Partnering with Pesa Swap, a local online and mobile payment solutions company based in Nairobi and the United Kingdom, LemFi has successfully entered the Kenyan market.

Through the LemFi app, customers residing in the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada—known as the largest sources of remittances to Kenya—can transfer funds directly into bank accounts and mobile money wallets with zero fees.

The app also supports multiple currencies, allowing customers to open wallets and deposit money into different accounts.

With its sights set on over 500,000 Kenyans living abroad, LemFi aims to provide a seamless and cost-effective remittance service. The partnership with Njugush and the expansion of its services in Kenya solidify LemFi’s commitment to addressing the needs of the diaspora community and offering innovative financial solutions.
