How to be a bank agent: The advent of technology fueled by social distancing requirements in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic has sparked a rise in remote banking. This includes both mobile and agency banking.
Unlike years before, more people today have become aware that they can do all their banking by simply walking to a bank agent rather the traditional banking hall. Evidently, the rise of agency banking has also birthed new revenue streams for small and medium business owners
Today, you will be positioning yourself to reap from extra income as more and more Kenyans troop to agents by simply applying to become a bank agent. 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-operative Bank.
Currently, the bank has over 8.8 million customers with over 4. 4 million customers on the digital platform, M-Coop Cash. They have over 16,500 Kenyans living in the diaspora as their clients. The bank in partnership with various Saccos offers retail banking and related products through front-office service points (FOSAs) located at Sacco’s premises and to date 175 licensed Saccos have over 479 FOSA branches in operation. To date, over 164 SACCOs are enlisted in this partnership and over 1.18 million ATM cards have been issued to co-operative members. They also have the Coop Kwa Jirani agents with over 17,000 agents, internet banking customers who continue to grow.
