One of the biggest problems facing immigrant communities today is poor access to quality financial services. According to a recent study, Barriers to Immigrant Use of Financial Services, up to 40% of immigrant families don’t have quality access to proper services. And when they do, services can be unclear on terms and what exactly they offer.
At Remitly, our top priority is to help immigrant communities overcome these barriers. This is why we are extremely proud to be able to partner with Alexandra Ramírez, the
#FinanciallyFitLatina and financial expert on Univision TV’s “Despierta America.”
Alexandra educates Latin American communities so they can be financially fit and take control of their personal finances. She also provides helpful advice and tips when it comes to access to quality financial services as an important part of being financially fit is choosing the right services that fit your needs.
By doing this, Alexandra seeks to empower the thousands of Latin American communities across the country to improve their quality of life and financial well-being.
