This summary uses the findings from 278 4Mi interviews to analyse the scale of remittances among Afghan migrants and refugees in destination countries. Results show that around one fifth of Afghan migrants and refugees send remittances back home to their families, friends or communities mainly through unofficial transfer networks such as the Hawala system. These unofficial networks are cheaper, faster and more trusted by Afghan people in comparison to official networks such as the banking system.
