Mobile banking usage has surged in Bangladesh -- this is welcome news.
More and more people are now utilising mobile financial services, with the average daily use having broken Tk1,000 crore barrier.
This is the way forward.
Bangladesh needs to capitalise on the opportunities that services such as these provide, as it allows people from all walks of life to take part in the economy of our country.
MFS is particularly beneficial to poor people, as it serves as a great alternative for those who do not have access to conventional banking services.
This is indeed the path to financial inclusion.
