High costs are a key obstacle to financial inclusions. These include the costs incurred by financial institutions to roll out infrastructure to service low income areas, with low value transactions and the costs incurred by the customer to access banking services. Globally, agency banking provides an efficient, cost effective way to extent banking services to a wider community.
