Testimonials from past participants
“This course is a must for Branchless Banking/MFS providers looking to set up and initiate the roll out of their Agent Networks. It will provide you the basic that you need in order to get started, from how to select an agent, who to select, to monitoring, risk implications and much more! Furthermore, the expert presenters brought in during the course are able to provide on ground realities to the participants rather than just theories.”

“Initially I thought the training would be very academic but I realised after day one that it was very practical with a lot of real life experiences. I also appreciate the international information and the different country findings. The cultural differences within the course participants, the mixture of both the telecom and the banks was good in bringing a great mix to the training.”
