MANILA, Philippines–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dec. 09, 2020

WorldRemit, a leading digital cross-border payments business, is launching a promotion to help customers celebrate the holiday season and build a dream business for a loved one in the Philippines.

From November 1st until December 31st, 2020 customers can enter the promotion by sending money to the Philippines using their valid WorldRemit account, and registering at www.worldremit.com/pangkabuhayan to get a chance to win 1 of 10 Grainsmart franchise business packages worth PHP 200,000 for a recipient of their choice back home.

“We at WorldRemit recognise the challenges that Overseas Filipino Workers and their families face especially at this very difficult time. On top of ensuring that remittances are safely received through our services, we want to help these families rebuild and become more financially independent by creating opportunities to generate sustainable income. With this promotion we are not only supporting the recipients but also the Filipino farmers who similarly need support,” said Earl Melivo, Country Director for the Philippines at WorldRemit.

Each Grainsmart franchise business package includes:

  • 60 sacks (25 kg each) of rice
  • A digital weighing scale
  • A tablet that’s fully set up for a bills payment centre account
  • Business signage, marketing collateral, and other business paraphernalia
  • An online training and mentorship program – to provide guidance for setting up the business for success

Globally, the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected people’s livelihoods. The onslaught of Super Typhoon Goni and Typhoon Vamco has magnified this in the Philippines, displacing thousands, devastating homes and destroying businesses.

Winners will be announced on the WorldRemit Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/WorldRemit/).
