*How do I get increased limits? 🚀

Once you get close to reaching your limits, then you can request to increase them via the Mama NALA in-app chat. Before we'll be able to raise them, we'll ask for a bit of additional information so as to comply with local regulations.

To begin with, we will need you to confirm the following information:

To raise your limits, we need some additional information from you for compliance purposes.

To begin with, can you please confirm:

1. The purpose of your transfers?

2. What's your main source of income?

Please send a copy of your bank statement for the last 30 days to attest to this. If the funds come from a different means, let me know and I'll let you know what documents we need. You can send the documents to mamanala@nala.com.

πŸ’‘Make sure the recipient has enough space in their local wallet balance to receive the money you send to them and that you don't exceed the provider transfer amount.
