Topical card for Somalia

First ever debit card service in Somalia launches.

I was informed this week that Dahabshiil, the largest international money transfer business in the Horn of Africa, has launched the first ever debit card service in Somalia to help individuals and businesses make and receive payments. Very timely, I thought. “Can I use it to pay the ransom on my neighbours from Tunbridge Wells? They went sailing a few months ago,” I responded to the PR who sent me the news.


“Very quick. For obvious reasons cannot comment on that. In my opinion it is good to see that some good news stories are coming out of Somalia,” was his response.
