More than 10 million Bangladeshis are thought to be working outside their home country. That’s a huge number, and so is the amount they transfer back to friends and family: $22 billion in 2020 alone. Sending money to Bangladesh means you’re contributing not only to the wellbeing of your loved ones, but also to your home country’s economy. But how can you avoid unclear exchange rates, and paying too much in transfer fees?

Remitly was created with this concern in mind. We’re here to ensure you can send Bangladeshi takas to friends and relatives in a fast, secure, and cost-effective way. When it comes to how remittances are received in Bangladesh, there are a few options. Your recipient can pick the money up in cash at a pickup point, or have the funds sent to their mobile wallet or bank account. If the bank in question is Dutch-Bangla Bank, here’s how it’s done.

More about Dutch-Bangla Bank

As the name suggests, Dutch-Bangla Bank (or DBBL) was forged by a partnership between a Dutch company and Bangladeshi shareholders. That was back in the 1990s, and the bank has continued to grow in stature ever since. It’s been a pioneer in the field of automated banking, operating the country’s largest number of ATM machines. It also takes social responsibility very seriously, priding itself on funding good causes across Bangladesh.

Its past work includes donating large amounts of money to disadvantaged women as financial assistance for setting up farms and agricultural enterprises, and helping fund the construction of a hospital for cancer treatment.
