Merchant landscape in Bangladesh
Every quarter, 10 million mothers are receiving primary education stipend directly into their mobile wallet - we are providing the technological platform for that. Previously mothers used to go to a special camp to collect money - which was a time, cost and energy consuming process.
We have seen that even with limited resources customers are ready to embrace new technology if you can create value for them. I wouldn't be surprised if in 10 years Bangladesh adopts digital technology in the same way as USA and China. We as providers need to cope up with customers' growth.
