He pointed out that the services are beneficial to customers in terms of saving time and effort, as it permits them to send money (cash or bank account) to their designated beneficiaries at desired locations across Western Union’s global network.
Mandani added that customers who want to transfer money from their account to an overseas location via Western Union can conveniently and securely access the KFHOnline app on their mobile devices. Then, they can carry out the transfer procedure by following specific and swift steps.
He pointed out that the service is designed to offer the best benefits to KFH customers and is part of the Bank’s cooperative efforts with global money transfer companies. The aim is to facilitate secure, transparent, and prompt money transfer that aligns with customer expectations.

Western Union’s Regional Vice President for the Middle East, Pakistan and Afghanistan, Hatem Sleiman, emphasized the importance of the collaboration, which gives customers access to the full scale of Western Union’s network.
Sleiman added that according to World Bank’s 2022 remittance data, Kuwait ranked in the top 10 send markets globally. Consumers expect a choice in how and when they send money.
