Agent banking is a system in which individuals are equipped with tools that let them carry out banking hall transactions for members of their community.
Agent banking gives people access to banking facilities and helps them get bank accounts and run transactions. PayCentre is a leading agent banking platform in Africa.
According to the EFInA 2018 report, only 39.45% of Nigeria’s adult population makes use of or have access to banking services. This is where Agent banking comes in to create employment opportunities and empower communities by creating simple banking facilities.
