Family is not an important thing, it is the ONLY important thing! When the whole world turns back on you, your family would still welcome you with open arms. We would do anything for our families and their happiness.To be able to provide for their families, millions of people migrate to other countries for the prospect of a better job with higher pay. They leave their comfort zones because they know that the sacrifice that they make will enable their families to live a better life back home. LALA World has set about to make a difference into the lives of these millions and we’re gearing towards decentralized financial ecosystem with its simple mission – “Making Human Lives Better.”
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
According to the Migration and Remittances Factbook 2011, more than 215 million people live in a country other than the one they were born in. Such a huge number of migrant workers also send a large amount of money as remittance back home to their families in their country. In effect, more than $440 billion is moving around the world, the result of the hard work and sacrifice of migrants.
That migrants face tremendous amounts of problems would be a gross understatement. Apart from the obvious problems of settling in an alien land with curious customs, culture and different people comes the overbearing hurdle of financial non-inclusion. Getting these migrants into the financial ecosystem mainstream is a difficult proposition.
Migrants often send a majority of their earnings back home to their families and to do that, they have to rely on intermediaries. Intermediaries like remittance platforms and banks often charge hefty transaction fees or commissions. The migrant population is suppressed in terms of the remittance facilities that they have available for them. This suppression needs to end and the only way to do this is to empower the people at both the ends of the transfer.
The uplift of these people is the driving force behind the development of diversified solutions through the use of technology and the network of LALA World. The solution that LALA World has developed for tackling the pertinent hurdles involved in global remittances is LALA Transfer. It is one of the most comprehensive remittance solutions available with a mix of traditional remittance aggregators (they are not going anywhere soon), peer-to-peer local and global transfer of funds and stellar Blockchain technology, all enabled on a single robust platform – LALA Wallet, a global Wallet for all your financial needs and which will help the decentralize the current financial ecosystem.
