Over 32,000 Nigerians have adopted our agency banking scheme – Ecobank

Ecobank Nigeria says over 32,000 Nigerians including former employees and retirees have adopted its Agency Banking Scheme to sustain their everyday living.

According to the bank, apart from helping to drive its financial inclusion strategy in Nigeria, the agents were empowered to create wealth and enjoy financial freedom.

Head of Agency Banking, Ecobank Nigeria, Olanike Kolawole stated this while responding to media questions in Lagos.

According to Kolawole the customer experience is very good as customers can do the simple deposit, payment and transfers in their own neighbourhoods rather than travel for hours to a bank branch.

“These are all parts of our efforts as a bank to help more Nigerians embrace entrepreneurship as the best strategy to tackle poverty and address growing unemployment.

“We are happy with our agency banking services providers also known as our Xpress point agents, knowing they are playing a critical role in helping us reach out to the unbanked and underbanked in the society. They are bringing more people to the banking space through their services.
