Objective of Pofib
Advise, train and support institutions which deliver services resulting in improved access to financial services for the un- and under-banked.
The business model is a mass retail banking concept based on involvement by these financial services providers of post office and other agent networks in rendering these services .
The institutions deploying this branchless banking concept are financial sector institutions and other service providers which are focused on mass-retail financial services, such as postal banks and (postal) savings bank in co-operation with postal companies and post offices networks.
A growing share in the mass retail financial services market is being gained by non-banking institutions such as remittances operators like mobile operators and international money transfer organizations and of course micro finance initiatives in the broader sense.
Improving the accessibility has also to be fulfilled through improving the existing (postal) financial services along developing and implementing new retail financial services also for un- and under-banked people.
