Remittance Market / Credit Card Penetration Vietnam

Especially the  Remittance market (around 14bio USD every year!) and the young tech-savvy population can boost Fintech in Vietnam. However, Credit Card use is still only around 3 to 4 percent. USA to Vietnam is one of the top 3 remittance bridges in south east asia. This give opportunities for Fintech Startups to disrupt traditional money transfer players such as Moneygram. If they will be able to cut the money transfer fees to Vietnam, Vietnam’s GDP growth could growth even more.
