Workana – Latin America’s largest freelance platform – recently announced their expansion into South-East Asia, where they’ll be able to connect freelancers in the region with clients all over the world. To celebrate the event, we decided to have a look at Workana’s story and how they’re now able to provide Asian freelancers with a platform to greatly expand their global client base.
What is Workana?
Workana was founded in 2012 as a platform for Latin American freelancers, including web designers, writers and programmers, to connect with potential clients all over the world. In the six years since it was established, the company has grown exponentially and currently has more than 1 million freelancers using its services.
Workana’s expansion into the Philippines, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Singapore represents their first venture outside of Latin America and is a sign of how quickly the South-East Asian freelancer market is developing. The move opens new opportunities for Asian freelancers looking to connect with clients in Latin America, as well as the rest of the world.
Payoneer has been working with Workana since 2012 to facilitate easy payments to its users from the US, Latin America and EU. Payoneer’s Global Bank Transfer service allows for the transfer of funds to freelancer bank accounts or to their Payoneer cards.
