Unidos Financial is a company based in New York that is tackling this problem in this segment with their line of financial products:
– International money transmitting.
– Personal debit cards.
– Domestic and international bill payments.
– Check cashing.
– Domestic and international Top-Up (payments of pre-paid cellphone services).
As Juan Llanos, co-founder and Executive Vice President of Unidos Financial, says in this interview the company’s strategy is to deliver their services using their state of the art tech platform through retailers and agents, then they will launch an online and mobile platform, and eventually, if and when regulatory and bank concerns have subsided, integrate digital currencies like Bitcoin.
