Last updated on June 27th, 2024 at 03:16 pm

If you support loved ones by sending money to Colombia, you’re not alone. A recent report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) shows that 4.7% of all Colombians live abroad—around 1.3 million people, in fact. Your remittances help communities from Bogota to Barranquilla to small villages. Unfortunately, high transfer fees and poor exchange rates can make sending money to Colombia expensive. That’s where Remitly comes in.
