First Bank of Nigeria Limited has re-launched its Firstmonie agent network with a pilot of the agent banking scheme in six states.
The six states regarded as highly populated include Lagos, Oyo, Kano, Abuja Fct, Anambra and Rivers.
Firstmonie agents are based within rural and semi-urban locations across the country to provide basic financial services such as account opening, cash deposit, cash withdrawals, airtime purchase, bill payments and much more to every Nigerian.
Through this channel, the bank is committed to providing convenient services that provide ease of access to financial products, thereby saving time and travel costs.
After an impressive six-month pilot that ended in December 2017, the agent banking scheme was extended nationwide in January, 2018.
Within six months of its launch, the scheme has made appreciable progress with a pervasive network spread across every state, and almost every local government area nationwide (over 98 per cent coverage).
