Empowch: Revolutionizing Cross-Border Payments for the Lebanese Around the World

July 23, 2023

In recent years, Lebanon has faced immense economic challenges, leading to a collapse of the banking system and leaving almost 90% of its population unbanked. For the Lebanese diaspora living abroad, sending money back home has become a daunting task, with high remittance costs and slow transfer times being the norm.

However, there’s a glimmer of hope on the horizon – Empowch, a revolutionary mobile payments platform is here to change the game. In this blog, we’ll explore the challenges faced by those sending money to Lebanon and how Empowch provides a solution that makes a real difference.


The Struggles of Sending Money to Lebanon.

For years, the Lebanese diaspora has relied on traditional remittance services like Western Union to send money to their loved ones back home. However, the process has been far from smooth. High transaction fees have eaten into the value of remittances, and lengthy processing times have caused financial stress and delays for both senders and recipients.

Adding to the woes, the collapse of the currency in Lebanon has meant that every dollar counts. Losing even $25 in remittance costs can have a significant impact on the receiving family’s financial stability. As the Lebanese economy struggles, the need for a reliable, affordable, and swift remittance solution has never been more critical.
