yes, exactly.
Money transfer agents are not necessarily banks. I can think of agents that
are primarily bureaux de change and convenience stores.

Why not?
As long as it helps me answering the questions "Where is

In our case, the service is contracted for another company and I believe it
is valuable to collect data about such a network.

Help me draw the line.
