Can you put Romania on the map? Most people could probably guess Her in Europe, but not much more. Attractions such as the Carpathian mountains, medieval fortresses and Dracula legends created by the growing tourism industry.
While bigger cities like Bucharest, close to resemble a modern European hubs, most of the country still consists of small villages. Rural locales, such as it continues to rely on family and friends abroad who send money to Romania in the form of remittances.
The currency is Leu (RON). In 2007, Romania joined the European Union, and by 2014 the euro will be used with the rest of the group. Historically, the dollar rate was fairly stable between 3 and 3.4 RON per USD.
Nearly three million Romanians living and working abroad, many in service capacity. They are stationed throughout Europe and the U.S., and is known as a solid group that constantly sends money in Romania. Over the last few years transfers greatly exceeded domestic revenues, impressive. Most immigrants to return the money goes towards food, health care and education bills.
Much of Romania's population remains unconnected with the banks, the demand for more cash. The amount of ATMs across the country is increasing despite the absence of bank affiliation. Several methods that would transfer money from abroad to family or friends still living in Romania.
Wire transfers via electronic funds transfer services are a logical choice for the transfer of money in Romania. Sending and receiving a report of an independent status to facilitate the transaction. Funds may be available soon, but not without cost, which for many is too large a share of the total amount to be sent. Also, in small communities, privacy concerns arise as agents are privy to the amount and regularity of receiving money. Sending money is a private event for most people, and if the whole community knows its economic position that could lead to unpleasant feelings.
Bank Direct bank transfers are definitely an option, but a low proportion of the population that is strongly associated with the bank remains at less than desired levels. With this low background, it is less realistic for the Romanians abroad, to disperse their remittances through bank to bank transfers.
We have previously talked about how despite the unbanked population, a stark increase in the total number of ATMs in total and still prevail. The method for transferring money to the appropriate current events affect the reloadable debit card. Workers abroad can send money online, (better fitting their schedule) via reloadable debit card that is sent directly to a recipient. After receiving the card, the recipient can visit any local ATM card balance for download. These cards can have money added to them over and over, leading to a seamless transfer in an efficient way of moving forward.
Romania will remain hidden cultural mecca, with many interesting places and activities for visitors. I hope that the money was sent to Romania will continue to grow the infrastructure within the growing economy.
