KCB Bank Rwanda has hosted a digital banking presentation at the College of Business and Economics (CBE) of the University of Rwanda, calling on students to adopt digital banking.
The event, hosted by renowned radio host and comedian Arthur Nkusi before over 300 university students and staff, showcased new technologies in banking on both mobile and internet platforms.
“Banking today has been revolutionized to cater for the needs of our customers. The youth are key elements in technology advancement especially in financial services. They expect services instantly and usually on their mobile phones,” said KCB Bank’s Head of Marketing and Corporate Communications, Albert Akimanzi.
He remarked that it is vital for the bank to continuously inform its customers about the most recent methods of managing their money and transactions.
At CBE, KCB Bank presented its recently launched mobile banking service ‘Mobiloan’ which enables customers to apply and receive loans instantly, as well as a new product that lets non-customers instantly open an account using their phones by dialing *552#. This will enable the unbanked community to access banking services at any time, taking away the need to walk into banking halls.
Students participated in question & answer sessions to learn more about digital banking platforms, and could also win some prizes.
“Understanding digital banking will go a long way in promoting a cashless economy. The youth will ultimately be the engine that drives digital financial usage and we are happy to facilitate this process,” Akimanzi said.
