Mama Money Website

26 Feb 2018


Mama money was conceived as an idea by two Cape Town entrepreneurs as a facility for Zimbabwean expats to easily and cost effectively transfer money to relatives and friends in their own country.


Refresh consulted with the guys at Mama money to construct detailed wire-frames and website process diagrams in order to effectively plan the website interface to be as user-friendly as possible.

The users to the website were identified by the analytics reports to be largely on mobile devices, so the priority was to ensure the site content is easily viewable on all mobile devices, with desktop as the second priority. The information also needed to be explained in a non-technical format, for users that were not experienced online users.

The Work

Using a payment API developed by the talented guys at Electrum Payments  we developed the money transfer system, which allows users to setup an order and transfer money easily to relatives in Zimbabwe and beyond.

We developed a backend authentication system, (Called CLAIRE) which allowed call centre agents to easily approve and manage customers, and updated their contact and address information.

The project is ongoing and Refresh enjoys a positive working arrangement with this up and coming money transfer business.
