Lack of Transparency with Remittance Utilization Continues to Impact Migrant Communities

441

Pakistanis living abroad remit funds for essential tasks back home, and they often complain about their money not being used for the intended purpose. While living abroad as a migrant has its set of challenges, migrants also have to face time-sensitive delays and misuse of remittance back home.

Challenges Faced by Pakistani Immigrants Across the Globe

Zero Transparency

There is zero transparency in the traditional system; dishonest and dubious vendors back home are the reason why migrants have started to find safe, instant, and independent ways to transfer their hard-earned money to native countries.

Challenges that usually occur while dealing with vendors are:

  1. Misuse of funds,
  2. Money/goods not being delivered timely,
  3. Inflated bills & invoices,
  4. Ghosting by Business Vendors back home.

It’s because of these factors that migrants have lost ample time in the past. And are rapidly losing their trust in traditional remittance as well. Migrants are now switching to different reliable models that do the job well. 

Finding the Right Vendor

Accessibility issue comes as the biggest challenge, especially when one is miles away from home. Due to busy friends and family and a lack of access to trustworthy vendors, migrants have no choice but to work with any service provider they can find, resulting in an unsatisfactory delivery or no delivery at all.

Migrants have slowly realized that the traditional remittance model has become a black hole where there is no transparency on money spending. 

Firsthand Payments

According to a survey from CENFRI, 71% of migrants would prefer to make payments directly to a business vendor back home instead of sending money to a cousin or uncle and asking them to manage the transaction on their behalf. Direct payments to business vendors imply that migrants only pay for the actual cost of the particular service that they use. They don’t have to fret about facing any delays, misuse, or misplacement of funds.
