Nobel Liberia last Wednesday signed a partnership arrangement with Ecobank as the newest money transfer service in the sector. NOBEL Liberia already has similar arrangements with LBDI (Liberia Bank for Development and Investment) and IB (International Bank).
This partnership is to create easy access to Liberians wanting to receive money from the United States.
The program was attended by officials of both institutions including the Managing Director of Ecobank Liberia, Mr. George Mensah Asante, who expressed appreciation to the management team of Nobel Liberia for the initiative with the bank and assured his institution’s support.
The president and chief executive officer of Noble Liberia, Jallah Kesselly, expressed hope in the growth of the Liberian economy, and said his institution does not send money out of Liberia, adding, “We will like to keep money in Liberia, rather than sending money out of Liberia.”
He said his company’s remittance service is the most convenient, cheapest and notably the easier way for Liberians in the United States to send money back home to their friends and relatives.
Kesselly said that Nobel Money Transfer Service is currently available in Michigan, Maryland, North Carolina, Minnesota, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Colorado, and Philadelphia with additional cities to follow soon.
He said for every ten transactions an individual receives from the United States, he or she individual will receive a free premium bag of Nobel US parboiled rice and a T-shirt. He said this move is Nobel Liberia’s way of showing appreciation to those utilizing its service.
Kesselly said Nobel Money Transfer Service will also be available at all United Bank for Africa (UBA) branches in Liberia by the end of October.
Also present at the occasion were the financial comptroller of Nobel Liberia, Mr. Nim’ne Elliot Mombo, Jr., while Ecobank Liberia representatives who also witnessed the occasion included Gibson Kollie, head of consumer banking; William Krakue, head of remittances; Trokon Jackson, head of clients engagement management; and Ivy Fairley Fahnbulleh, head of marketing and communications.
Since inception, Nobel Liberia has over the years provided thousands of United States dollars to various charity causes in Liberia including Miss Liberia, the Chicago Bright Foundation and the Monrovia Football Academy, among others.
Nobel Liberia’s main office is located in the Bible Society Building on 11th Street, Sinkor.
