About

Boom Financial (formerly m-Via) is solving the problem of making it safe, easy and cheap for immigrant consumers to share money with extended family in the US and 'back home'... one text message at a time. We aim to kill traditional cash remittances in favor of a mobile banking ecosystem that will create a global connected community of banked consumers. How cool is that? Boom is the world's first cross border mobile banking network working with retailers, banks, government agencies and technology partners. The company has received over 30 million $ in venture financing from RRE Ventures, Digicel Group, Matt.org and individual investors.
