One World Ventures Signs Letter of Intent to Process Prepaid Cards With eCommLink

eCommLink Will Support Domestic Payroll Cards and International Remittance Programs

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - January 5, 2010) - One World Ventures, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: OWVI), provider of the 1World Card prepaid debit card, announced today that it has signed a Letter of Intent and submitted a deposit to eCommLink, Inc., a leading value added prepaid processor, to develop and deploy corporate prepaid solutions and remittance programs. This working relationship combines eCommLink's secure, flexible and reliable prepaid processing platform with the market strengths and multi-cultural footprint of the 1World Card.

The 1World Card will allow consumers without bank accounts to avoid the high costs of check cashing and money order fees by using a reloadable prepaid debit card complete with direct deposit, bill pay and money transfer services. The 1World Card will be marketed directly to employers as a payroll card, which they in turn offer to their employees.

Payroll cards are the fastest growing segment of the prepaid debit industry because these cards offer significant benefits for every party involved, including the employee who enjoys instant access to funds, the employer who cuts disbursement costs and the banks who are able to retain funds within their institution longer. In addition to being a full featured prepaid debit card, the 1World Card will interface with international partners to provide low cost remittance for cardholders.

"We are excited to be working with eCommLink, one of the premier processors of prepaid solutions. Our business model is to provide a wide range of much needed financial products that improve the quality of life for our cardholders. We believe the adaptive nature of the eCommLink platform will allow us to not only meet the needs of the market today, but to grow with it for years to come," stated Steve Prior, CEO, One World Ventures Inc.
