The meetup was organized at BRAC Learning Centre, Mymensingh. 75+ freelancers from the region participated in the event to discuss the problems they face and work out solutions.

Themed as ‘Freelancers’ Contribution to Building Smart Bangladesh and MFS as Growth Facilitator’, the event focused on different pertinent issues related to freelancing, like payment issues through banking channels and lack of recognition. Speeches by three freelancers discussed these problems and emphasized the need for solutions. They also highlighted its importance in materializing Smart Bangladesh vision and mentioned the role of banks and MFS providers in facilitating the freelancers.

Other discussion topics included the overall situation of the freelancing industry, its prospect, development areas and how UCB and upay are stepping up its efforts to help the freelancers through various services.

Moreover, upay has brought in UCB–upay co-branded prepaid card. Freelancers can utilize the fund for foreign currency transactions, make merchant payments (online and offline) and complete global ATM cash withdrawal with the help of this card. They can also receive payments from Payoneer and avail cashout service at the lowest charge using upay account.
