Nowadays when you want to send money to Colombia, there are so many companies that promise user-friendly services and great rates. But is this really true? Many times when you take a closer look, you’ll find hidden fees, long waits, and difficult to reach pick-up locations. And some companies don’t give you the option to have your recipient pick up money at a cash pick-up location at all!

You can only send it directly to a bank through a direct deposit. This is not very helpful or inclusive for the 35% of unbanked Colombians who have no access to formal financial services in Colombia, according to the Inter-American Development Bank.
