It largely depends on the cost to manufacture and the number of items you are selling. The more items you are selling every month the more profitable it would be to have production in the US. If you are only selling a few items, it may be worthwhile to keep producing them overseas, but look for a cheaper way to ship them.

The first thing you need to do is clarify your idea. A "mobile wallet" can mean a lot of things. Are you wanting to build an app, a company that partners with credit card providers, or create a vehicle to save on medical bills? You must think about this and research.
Once you have clarified your idea. Imagine your end user's experience and imagine how your product will help them. Once you have done that begin working backwards from the end product to determine what you need. So for an app you would need some servers, a developer, and a good idea. You get the point. You must study what you want to do and then you will have the clarity you need.
Reach out to small businesses in your area. If you can sell them on the benefits of having a strong online presence and help them set up a website and a blog, you will get some solid first customers.

Access to credit depends on the country and the credit worthiness of the borrower. For a business account, they will want to see strong financials. The trick is to get to know the lenders that serve the country you account is located in. Then apply for loans that suit your needs.

You need to have a lawyer draw up non-disclosure and/or non-compete documents. Then have your lenders/investors sign them. However, that will alienate some lenders. Risk of someone taking your opportunities is a risk of doing business. It sucks to stick your neck out and risk getting taken advantage of, but sometimes that is the cost of doing business.
