“Our journey, into the global market, began in 2012, with the launch of Zororo Phumulani in South Africa, powered by Doves Zimbabwe.

“We will be rolling out exciting products, predominantly for the diaspora market, anchored on and powered by Doves Zimbabwe.”

Real Betis general business manager, Ramón Alarcón, hailed the development.

“We are very happy, with this agreement, with Doves Holdings,” he said.
