UniTeller and Banorte with the Center for International Monetary Studies (CLAMS ) and the Multilateral Investment Fund ( MIF ) of the Inter-American Development Bank Group (IDB ) , presented the Women’s Migration and Mexican Income from Remittances study = in the CEMLA headquarters in Mexico City . The study acknowledges that there are millions of Mexicans who have migrated abroad and that each year they send billions of dollars to their families in Mexico.
The study focuses on female Mexican migration to the United States and the impact this migration has had on remittances from that country, whereas in 2013 the country represented the destination of 97.8 % of the Mexican migration and consequently a similar percentage of the Mexican income due to remittances.
In 2013 the total number of female international migrants resulted in 111.2 million, which represented 48% of all migrants and 3.1 % of the world women population.
In recent decades, the international female migration has shown a more dynamism than the female world population growth. On the other hand, women represent the primary beneficiary group of remittances with 71.7% of the number of transfers and the 67.4% of the resources sent..
Both in remittances sent by men and by women, the main beneficiary group is women. Overall, the remittances that women send to Mexico are of smaller amount that those sent by men, regardless of the gender of the recipient.
