What’s the best way to send money to Ghana from the US?
Ghana is home to beautiful landscapes, exotic wildlife and bustling cities that house hundreds of thousands. The country has a rapidly growing economy, but also benefits from over $2 billion received each year from Ghanaians living abroad. For instance, there are an estimated 235,000 immigrants from Ghana living in the US, some of which send money internationally to support loved ones still living in their home country.
This group needs simple and reliable money transfer methods when sending money back to Ghana to ensure their funds arrive quickly and safely to friends and family.
How can I make a money transfer to Ghana from the US?
