Leading telecom operator Robi has recently partnered with Bank Asia to launch micro-merchant initiatives.
They will begin with a pilot project in Chokoria which will be expanded to the rest of the country. As part of the pilot project, beneficiaries of the social safety net programme, such as, widows, senior citizen and disabled people will receive their payment through Bank Asia from selected Robi retail points.
Following the pilot project, Bank Asia customers will also be able to withdraw money from their Bank Asia accounts from the selected Robi retail points under the micro-merchants scheme of Bank Asia. The pilot project will begin from the mid-July.
Robi’s Managing Director and CEO, Mahtab Uddin Ahmed, and Bank Asia’s President & Managing Director, Md Arfan Ali signed the partnership.
