We assume the decision of leaving your country and most probably also your loved ones to go and live abroad wasn’t the easiest one you ever took. Still you are most probably doing it for the family, thinking of their future and enabling them to have a better life today. To make this happen you send cash home on a regular basis. During the money transfer procedure some of that bright future is being taken away. International banks and numerous intermediaries take their cut each time you transfer money. Those charges can easily be as high as 10% and more. Let’s say you transfer 200,000,000 IRR per year. That’s 20,000,000 rials of the money your family will never see, a lot of cash they could spend on things they really need. In addition to being expensive, these transactions are slow and usually take days if not longer. We believe we have a fairer deal for you.
