We help SMSBs grow while driving financial inclusion.
Association of Mobile Money and Bank Agents in Nigeria (AMMBAN) has been incorporated to help facilitate, organize and speed-up agents’, operators’ and regulator’s effort towards the financial inclusion policy of the Federal Government of Nigeria.
We are driven by a common goal.
To be the focal point and No.1 driver of financial inclusion in Nigeria by providing excellent service and delivering value to Nigeria’s financially vulnerable and excluded population.
To operate as a web of agent-network spread across the federation, with a robust database and reliable infrastructure; aimed at facilitating collaboration and creating the required synergy and market stimulation; and also protecting our business interest, with the quintessential goal of being a set of formidable players in the nation’s financial inclusion drive.
To improve the capacity of agents across the Country through training, communicating changes in the evolving new sector, integrating best practices, and employing aggressive approaches to onboard new and existing agents in the country.
To see a considerable percentage (70%) of mobile subscribers in Nigeria carry-out one form of financial transaction or the other via their mobile wallet by year 2020.
The Financial Services for Everyone Ericsson ConsumerLab report, which looked at five countries: Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Nigeria and Uganda reveals 63 per cent of respondents are unbanked, and 52 per cent use mobile money through agents.
Against this backdrop AMMBAN is championing the ‘Project #10million campaign. At AMMBAN, we believe that agents have a vital role to play in driving financial inclusion and literacy in the country by way of signing up new mobile wallets and educating subscribers. It is expected that each agent outlet registers a minimum of 5 new mobile money accounts monthly. In 24 months, each agent would have registered an average of 120 new mobile money wallets, this multiplied by 100,000 agents spread across the Country would give over #10million new accounts thereby exceeding our target.
With support from stakeholders and industry players, we believe that ‘the Project 10million’ is attainable within the specified time frame.
