Hand2Hand Transfers has launched a money transfer service which allows customers to instantly send money to Zimbabwe from the convenience of their computers or mobile phones.

The best part of it is that our customers can transact from the comfort of their homes or offices,” says Jefta Mugweni, the Chairman of Champion Forex (Pvt) Ltd.
