Pomelo is on a mission to change how international money transfer works.

Our Purpose

Pomelo strives to make the American Dream more attainable for U.S. immigrants, while also being able to provide financial stability for their families abroad.

Mobile money is understood to be cashless, modern, and free. To us, mobile money is also inherently social--we are connected more than ever and want loved ones to be secure.

Our mission is to reinvent the money transfer experience with credit to make it refreshingly free, fast, and safe.
