Getting paid by Vietnamese friendss

Howdy, I loaned some money to help a family out. Is there really no way for them to transfer funds abroad? No or Paypal? Overseas connections might work? (X pays $ 500 into a local account and Y in the UK deposits funds in the UK)

Sending a few hundred Dollars back and forth can't be such a big deal, can it? Especially since the first payment was made b bank transfer, so one could print that out if someone really wants to check it out.
They said, they would "bring cash in 5 weeks" when we will meet. Is this thee state of things? Just wondering!
