Kenya is a country in which a lot of its citizens prefer to do jobs to companies and institutions which are foreign and majorly out of Kenya. These companies in return pay these Kenyan citizen through online services which could make receiving of the money by these Kenyans a nightmare and a tough experience to them due to the level of technology in Kenya. As a result, payoneer has been established to help citizens who are not actually Americans to receive payments directly to their local bank accounts as if they were Americans with American bank accounts.
