Western Union has teamed up with SuperGIROS thus bringing WU’s cross-border global money movement and payments capabilities in every SuperGIROS retail location across Columbia.

By teaming with SuperGIROS, Colombians now have more than 9,800 additional locations to send and receive money to friends and family around the world.

The move brings the total number of Western Union locations in Colombia to 17,000, reinforcing the company’s commitment to offer even more convenience to its customers. SuperGIROS locations are offering extended hours, every day of the week, to help customers conveniently send and receive their remittances.

In Colombia, remittances are critically important in helping ensure health and safety for those who receive them, especially in remote communities across the country. In Colombia and across Latin America we continue to expand our network, offering consumers more convenience, introducing new services, and allowing them to send money to their families and loved ones across the world. We look forward to working with SuperGIROS to help bridge the gap to full financial inclusion for all Colombians

The SuperGIROS network in Colombia has expanded to include 23 provinces. Together, both companies now possess a country-wide footprint that reaches the most remote areas of the country, providing access to financial services that were lacking in the past.

Remittances continue to be the lifeline for many Colombian families, so we must prepare and go even further. Through the launch of Western Union international money transfers in our 10,000 stores, we can now connect our customers with their families across the world
