Money2Ethiopia.com (M2E) was founded in Seattle Washington in 2013 by members of the Ethiopian Diaspora, who were confronted by a basic problem. There were simply no safe, legal and cost effective options to send money to Ethiopia. The Ethiopian Diaspora population here in the US incur significantly higher fees using Western Union and MoneyGram then do other immigrant communities when sending money home. These higher fees are a common theme across much of Africa due in part to a lack of competition among the major money transfer companies operating in these developing markets.
M2E provides the 900,000 Ethiopian Diaspora in the US a fast, reliable, low cost and convenient way to send money to loved ones back home. Our goal is to become the leading online and mobile platform application used by the Ethiopian diaspora to send money from the US to Ethiopia. We take pride in being close to our customers, speaking the languages, and serving as a tool for economic growth in Ethiopia.
