Remittances

Imagine a sailor in the Philippines who is hired at a large shipping company, that pays him in cash. He must send this cash back home in remittances that go through many fees, reducing the purchase power of the final amount that is received by his family. On average, 7% of remittances sent are lost to fees, meaning a staggering $48 billion per year is taken away from local communities where they are needed most. In 2018, $689 billion in remittances were sent around the world; in 30 countries, remittances comprised over 10% of their GDP. That money would go a long way in reducing global poverty.

Remmitances

Remittances are vital for bringing countries out of poverty. The UN estimates that on average migrant workers send $200 – $300 home every one or two months. These amounts make up about 60 per cent of the family’s household income.

This equals to 1-9 people globally who are supported by remittances sent home by migrant workers. It is also estimated that most of this demographic live in rural areas, where three quarters of the world’s poor live.
