How to Become Co-op Bank Agent: The Kenyan economy is shifting. In fact, selling of goods and services in Kenya is swiftly evolving from the traditional over-the-counter format to a new digital model. This has spurred the growth of fresh multiple opportunities. One of these opportunities is in the banking sector, where provision of banking services has moved from the banking hall to digital and agency platforms.

Let us focus on the agency sector. By becoming a bank agent, you will be positioning yourself to reap from extra income as more and more Kenyans troop to agents rather than the banking hall. But you must get the business right from the word go. One of the best ways you can do this is by enrolling with a bank that already has a solid financial foundation, reputation, and ability to support your agency. And what better bank to get started with than the Co-op Bank.
