Today, Indosat, one of Indonesia’s largest mobile providers, and HomeSend, a joint venture between MasterCard, eServGlobal and BICS, announced a new electronic remittance program. View the full press release.
In Indonesia, a country of more than 10,000 islands, it’s not uncommon for a family member to have to take a job away from home. It’s a sacrifice many make to provide a better life for their family. Securely sending cash or checks home can be difficult and time consuming. Through this program, workers send funds home electronically; friends and family can simply use their mobile phones to accept the transfer. There’s no more traveling or no waiting in long lines.
We’re proud that MasterCard technology, through HomeSend and Indosat’s Dompetku Mobile Money program, is helping Indonesians securely and conveniently send money home.
