Gone were the days sending money was not a simple thing to do, to send money you will have to walk miles to the bank, join the queue and wait for it to be your turn and then send.
Same applies to when money has been sent to you and you want to withdraw, you will have to go with your national identification card (voters card, passport, Ghana card).
