Mergims is a platform (mobile app & website) that connects African migrants with merchants in Africa, allowing them to buy products and services for their dependents back home. Mergims’ business model guarantees the proper use of funds sent, minimizes administrative procedures, significantly reduces the costs related to remittance, and also eliminates the handling of cash for senders and receivers.
Mergims offers a marketplace through an Android mobile application to African migrants living around the globe. Mergims has won several awards, including Think Rwanda Top 10 2015 and Creative Hub Award 2015.
