Agency Banking Solution
The Agency Banking solution delivers financial inclusion for unbanked and under banked customers who live in remote locations without access to brick and mortar branches. By increasing the number of touch points providing financial access, whilst reducing transaction costs. The Agency Banking Model is a key part of the financial inclusion strategy for Africa.
Isolation and a lack of infrastructure compound the issues facing those living in remote rural areas when it comes to accessing financial services. Agency Banking opens the door to greater financial freedom by extending business hours to customers and offering greater convenience to the rural population facing challenges due to poor infrastructure.
