Remittance Services and Their Value

Remittance Services have been around for some time now and are used by millions of people on a daily basis. That is how money is sent from one country to another by persons who are usually working in a foreign country or to students who are studying abroad from their parents. This type of service makes sending and receiving money very easy for those who use it because they can get the money almost immediately as it is sent. Far from benefiting only those who receive the monies remitted, remittances help to build up the economy of the countries they are sent to.

Consider this: person A in a first world country sends money to person B in a lesser developed country. The money person B receives has to be usually converted to the local currency. The banks get the foreign currency which they use to make foreign investments while the government of the country uses said foreign exchange to purchase goods and services on the international market. The economy of the country grows because it is better able to fund its projects as a result of the foreign currencies being remitted to it. So the next time you send or receive a remittance, remember that it benefits both you and the country that you live in.
