Raising awareness on the high cost of remittances

Around the world, 700 million people - or 10% of the world population - regularly receive money from their wives, husbands, children or parents, working abroad to support their family. Each year, they spend over $45 billion in transfer feesthe equivalent of Kenya's GDP. If the average cost of these money transfers were lowered to 3%, more than $28 billion could be saved each year. 

To raise awareness on this issue, Monito - the comparison platform for international money transfer services -  is participating in the first World Money Transfer Day on the 15th of March 2015, and encourages money transfer operators to pledge ZERO transfer fees and ZERO commission on the exchange rate for all money transfers.
