Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) has launched REMBO, a digital remittance programme, through a strategic partnership with Tranglo. This programme aims to raise awareness for the adoption of mobile digital money transfer amongst Indonesian migrant workers in surrounding countries through the use of online channels.
The REMBO programme was launched on 13 May 2018, offering users a chance to win attractive prizes such as mobile phones, television sets and flight tickets. To participate, users have to remit money to any BRI account using one of Tranglo’s digital money transfer partners.
