Bold Idea 

Unlock millions of dollars in support for families in Latin America by replacing traditional remittances with SMS e-gift cards for local retails.

Summary 
As opposed to sending cash, Regalii allows Latinos in the U.S. to send gift cards (via SMS). Family members in LAC can redeem their Regalii in local stores and supermarkets where remittance recipients already shop.
