KARACHI (PR) – Bank Alfalah Limited (BAFL) and Warid Telecom have joined hands for their upcoming branchless banking services in Pakistan. The technological support for this collaboration is being provided by Monet and the pilot testing launch is currently underway as approved by the State Bank of Pakistan. The two companies have been working extensively to develop a branchless ecosystem which will offer a range of customized products and services tailored to suit the evolving needs of various stakeholders including consumers, institutions, SMEs and the government.
We will continue to explore joint efforts in order to provide innovative, technology driven value-additional propositions that increase access to financial services and hence reduce the gap between the ‘banked’ and ‘yet-to-be-banked’ in Pakistan,’ said Atif Bajwa, CEO of Bank Alfalah.
Muneer Farooqui, CEO Warid Telecom, while commenting on the occasion said “The future of the telecom industry in Pakistan lies in providing technological solutions that cater to a wide range of customer requirements which are not necessarily linked to communication only. The synergistic relationship between Warid Telecom and Bank Alfalah is a natural fit and the launch of Mobile Financial Services is another step in the right direction, where we look forward to using our collective resources and experience to provide further convenience to the Pakistani consumer.”
