Money transfer company MoneyGram has partnered with Wing (Cambodia) Limited Specialised Bank, a Cambodia-based mobile banking service provider, to provide a new service for its customers.

The collaboration is aimed at enabling MoneyGram customers to remit and receive money directly into their mobile wallets through Wing Money mobile app.

MoneyGram president and CEO Alex Holmes said: “With 80 percent of our online transactions being made on a mobile device, we are looking to provide even more options for our customers using our digital platforms.

“Wing is at the forefront of mobile money and electronic payments, and this mobile wallet tool will serve as a valuable asset for the under-banked in Cambodia, allowing consumers to conveniently and reliably send money across digital boundaries from anywhere.”

According to the National Bank of Cambodia, money sent home from Cambodians working abroad is an important source of income for families to pay their daily expenses, invest in and repay loans. In 2018, Cambodian migrant working abroad sent funds totalling $1.4bn back into the country.
