As an immigrant, I am acutely aware of the importance of sending money abroad. My family has been living in the USA for a while, since late 80’s to be exact. Ever since I can recall it, money was being sent to us in Peru and when we moved stateside we did the same as well. Things have improved massively in the ways we can send money to our loved ones abroad. In Peru, my parents and siblings had to rely on expensive bank transfer fees and sometimes this would take too long and was very inconvenient. Peru lived a period when the local currency was not worth very much, so USA dollars helped my entire family tremendously.
Now there is Xoom, a PayPal service, which is present internationally and it facilitates payments to friends and family in more than 40 countries around the world. For Mother’s Day I want to send a little cash for my beloved mother and my closest relatives in Peru. I love the idea that Xoom offers a secure, safe and fast alternative for sending money to my loved ones. Technology now offers mobile app that Xoom has and this is used for two-thirds of its transactions.
Living in the USA for so long (close to 25 years to be exact) is a reminder of how far my family has come along. We started out with very little moving to the USA and slowly, improved our lives. My parents, sister and brothers worked very hard and had the unwavering support of my aunt and uncle in CA. When we began to make money individually, we all sent money abroad in some way, either to pay for expenses related to our parents, mother, father and often for special occasions, gifts, graduations, you name it. Having a reliable service like Xoom is so great, it lessens the stress of sending money safely to our relatives abroad. This makes me wish we had it years ago, and am relieved that we can use it today! Xoom offers instant disbursements and you can select multiple ways for your family to get money including bank transfers, cash pick-up or delivery, bill pay and mobile reload. Payments can be tracked via SMS alerts and when monies are received a text message is sent.
