This note makes two poins. First, that the impact of remittances on poverty depends on who sends the remittances. If those who send it come from poorer households (semi-skilled and unskilled workers), its impact on poverty would be greater. Second, that the manner in which remittances are sent, i.e. through legal or illegal channels, also makes a difference in terms of its overall impact on the economy and through this on poverty.
