Access Bank Plc has said its e-wallet services have helped to increase financial inclusion of Nigerians at the rural areas in the country.
Chinedu Onuoha, the Head, Business Development and Planning, at Access Bank in an interview with Daily Trust said : “What we are trying to do is to ensure that every Nigerian who can earn a living was access to financial services.”
Onuoha said the e-wallet is a different type of account designed for customers who for some reason do not have some things that are required for Know your customer (KYC) and the other types of bank accounts.
He said the bank has 15-18 million customers who can use this mobile wallet to pay bills like paying the mechanic, bricklayers and water in a safe and cost effective manner.
Onuoha said customers are able to fund their e-wallet by going to outlets which are close to 20,000 or service agents which are over 100 000 around the country.
He also drummed up the Awuf berekete initiative, which is intended to encourage those that have funds but have abandoned it for a long time to start transacting.
