I've been using World Remit for a while to send money to Hargeisa.  It is really easy. Takes one second for the other person to receive the money and their fees are reasonable.

Poor Somalis business men will lose money and work. Foreigner investors will take the profit at least. Somalia needs investments but not this area. There were already so many Hawala. Why could not they invest solar and wind energy. Food productions and infrusture.

Same here. It has made so much difference. No longer travel to the local Hawala and queue up when sending cash.

I now able to send cash to loved ones when I am on train, in the park playing football, or even from my desk at work. Convenience. 

As of now, you can do all that in Somaliland too. You can make your orders from China or Dubai  while you are enjoying the sea and beach or even while you are drinking fresh camel-milk in the country side or hiking up in the Gacan-Libax mountains.

how much tax they going to pay? snd what kind of monitoring in place? stop money laundering etc

anyway great service.

Not too sure. I do not think there is any tax on money transfers. But I do think it should be. 

In the video, CEO Ahmed mentioned that the total money transfers that come to Somaliland is around 750 million a year. If there was a 5% tax, that could earn the gov't a whopping 35 million dollars. I think if this money is collected and used for community development, it is worth it.

      first of all i wanna say that i was born and raised in hargeisa, growing i always hated how some of our people tried so hard to be arabs but what they dont know is that arabs hate somalis. i personally experienced this when i when to saudi arabia as somali people are constantly called african go back to your country. one time a friend told me about a story of him that happened to him, he came late to prayer so some him and his freinds decided to do jamac on their own and this arab guy said he would lead, so he lead but it turns his quran was poor and and the somali guy exited prayer and told him let me lead instead but the arab guy told him that he is african and cant lead him. theres more examples which i would rather not talk about enough of that and back to somaliland i think that our flag doesn't represent somali people why it looks too arab as theres the arabic language all over it instead of our own language even on our emblems its arabic and english and no somali which is very embaressing. which i wish would be changed and am not saying that we should take the shahada of the flag but what am saying is we should write it in our language or use the emblem that is on other muslim countries flags like pakistan and turkey.... i would like you to post alternative flags somaliland should use. here is mine

      Jubaland; Although being a relatively new state in terms of Somalia's independence seems as if its in search of pure and utter autonomy.
      But the question is why? Can Somalia ever surrender its southern coast and second largest port to Kenya?
      Though let's be honest, in terms of independence, Jubaland's urge and determination in search of self-governance and pure sovereignty can only mean WAR and DISASTER up North. This would mean Somaliland would need to fight even harder for recognition. Not only will the air up north be rigged in deep pessimism, but Jubaland's stance for independence will ruin the dream, that of course....never was-
