Most people think that this is just family sending money to their people to survive.
Actually i know lots of people with business in the States that receive their money via remittances because they deliver it to your house directly and dont need to go to a bank. This looks like there is alot of people with businesses in the states retiring in the Dominican Republic because the numbers of remittances are getting higher and higher everytime.

Just compare to Haiti with same population and more poverty they just receive $3.8 billion compared to DR with $10 billion received, that means no one is moving to haiti unlike in the DR which we have seen massive flow of Dominicans coming back to retire with their pensions and their investements abroad.
