Life is connected by a chain of aspirations. Family has its aspirations hinged on the expatriate bread earner and the expatriate hinges it on not just the place, where he earns his money, but also on the channel through which the earned money is sent home. One community that is known for its commitment to aspirations, in both personal and professional spheres, is the Filipino community.
‘Up-to-date’ and ‘Happening’ are the epitaphs used to describe this vibrant class. Wherever they go, they build a strong community and live life to the brim. They belong to their community, their family, their country and their place of work. Whatever they take up, they give it their best. Nothing is nebulous about them and they contribute 100% to their work, adding value to their country of work and to the economy of their homeland, Philippines.
Helping them to stand up to their promise, back home and enabling them to be at peace, so that they can give their best always, is UAE Exchange, the leading global remittance and foreign exchange brand. The remittance major adds an integument to their hard work and protects their hard-earned money, ensuring it to reach its destination safely. Towards this, UAE Exchange has come up with a new value addition, MyBranch. This self-operated electronic kiosk helps customers to make their own remittance and bill payment transactions. This will empower the techno-savvy Filipinos to send money to their dear ones, pay their credit card bills or loan EMIs, all by themselves.
UAE Exchange has a strong bonding with all communities, which it serves. But Filipinos have a special place. The brand aligns itself with their vision of adding value to the family, community and the nation they belong to, and offers a wide range of services. The range includes bank transfers, instant money transfers, bill payments, online money transfers, airline ticket payments, payroll solutions and more.
Of all that is on offer, special mention should be made of Xpress Money and Western Union, the instant money transfer services. They are the most popular options among the Filipino community, which insists on speed and safety. Xpress Money, with thousands of agent locations in Philippines, delivers cash right at the doorstep of the beneficiary. These value additions enhance the convenience of this hardworking community.
