Kapruka is the tree that gives everything you wish.

Kapruka New Zealand is the only Sri Lankan New Zealand owned and managed money transfer business in New Zealand. We are a registered Financial Services Provider and follow guidelines given by Reserve Bank, Department of Internal Affairs & Financial Markets Authority. Being a smaller business we are trying hard to be competitive with banks, other large scale multi nationals and locally owned money transfer businesses. As we are a smaller outfit we can be of better service to you.

So here is a little bit of history about us.
