Western Union and M Lhuillier, one of the leading non-bank financial institutions in the Philippines, have expanded their partnership to offer Western Union money transfer services on the M Lhuillier mobile app – ML Wallet.

Receivers in the Philippines can now conveniently receive their Western Union money transfers into their ML wallets (available on both Android and iOS) by simply inputting Western Union’s unique money transfer control number (MTCN) and other identification details into the app. In the coming months, customers will also have the capability to send money worldwide through the app.

The ML wallet is M Lhuillier’s official mobile app that allows users to also shop, pay bills, buy eLoad and withdraw money. The app serves as the online bridge for Filipinos who do not have access to banks or other financial institutions.
