Equity serves some customers that live and work in remote rural areas, through a network of rural branches and through a system of mobile banks. In addition to providing services the mobile banking units are used for public relations and marketing purposes. Whilst banks such as Barclays and Kenya Commercial Bank closed their mobile services, Equity is rapidly expanding its mobile services. This paper explains the structure of each of the mobile units and their further evolution. Lessons from the mobile banking project are considered, and the performance of the units is explained. Client perspectives are aired.
