LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eight-division boxing world champion Manny Pacquiao discusses his latest business venture: 24/7 Visa® Prepaid Debit + Remit Card.
Even as Pacquiao prepares to face Juan Manuel Marquez for the third time in Saturday’s showdown at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, he has the well being of his fellow Filipinos in mind.
“24/7 Card is the all-new Visa debit card that allows people to send money to family and friends around the world for a low cost,” Pacquiao explains. “This is the first debit plus remit card designed especially for Filipinos who work hard to support their families back at home. Now Filipinos and other immigrants have an affordable, secure and convenient way to send money to their loved ones overseas.”
A native Filipino and national hero, Pacquiao has played a key role in developing 24/7 Card, which will make it easier and less costly for Filipino immigrants to send much needed financial support to their families in the Philippines. “Helping the Filipino community and families is a cause very close to my heart,” explains Pacquiao. “I am pleased to bring to our community a product that will help improve the lives of my countrymen around the world. 24/7 Card is my card.”
