The 16th of June has been declared as the International Day of Family Remittances by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) of the United Nations Organization (UNO) and is celebrated with fervour in Pakistan also under the leadership of Pakistan Remittance Initiative (PRI), whose mission is to facilitate remittances through the legal channels in Pakistan.

Sharing his thoughts on the occasion, M. Mudassar Aqil, President and CEO, Telenor Microfinance Bank / Easypaisa said, “The International Day of Family Remittances is a yearly reminder to recognize one of the most vital elements in the financial value chain, i.e. the people receiving and sending money from overseas to Pakistan. It has been our privilege to serve one of the largest customer base in the country and it gives us great honour to witness the trust that is placed with us every day. On this day, we renew our commitment to remain focused to providing our customers with most innovative yet user-friendly and secure payment services in the market”.
