A payments/remittance platform with focus on US-Philippines

In a nutshell, Tang will allow Filipino overseas foreign workers to send money home and the receiver in the Philippines to use the same app to pay bills and do peer to peer payments. Our key goal is to increase financial inclusion for the 70% of Filipinos that don’t have a bank account, mainly in rural areas where so far electronic payments adoption is extremely low. Remittances are a natural electronic money flow into these rural areas where they are currently cashed out. We aim to keep this electronic money flow electronic and engage the relatives abroad in driving e-money adoption.
