The Money Transfer Centre is an outlet by CBZ that’s solely dedicated to serving people who want to collect money. This exclusiveness will enable people to collect their money much faster than at other banks and CBZ’s branches.
Many people are reliant on remittances during the lockdown to supplement what little income they are earning in Zimbabwe. And many of these people are complaining about spending much time in long winding queues at banks and some money transfer agencies to collect their remittances. CBZ’s Money Transfer Centre is probably the answer they need to collect their money relatively real quick.
We looked at the foreign remittances space and realized the amount of time people are spending in queues to collect their funds and a decision was made to intervene by coming up with an exclusive centre to facilitate ease of collection of funds. The service will however still be available at all CBZ Bank branches to increase convenience.
This is to ensure that our customers will enjoy dedicated remittance business and refer friends and family to use the same facility. The Bank will be rolling out similar initiatives in other major urban centres around the country.
