MABS conducts MPB accreditation training for Visayas and Mindanao banks

After two successful sessions for Luzon banks in Pampanga and Tagaytay, MABS conducted a mobile phone banking accreditation training for Visayas and Mindanao banks on March 17 at the Sarrosa International Hotel and Residential Suites in Cebu City.
Twenty-two participants from 13 MABS participating banks attended the training.
The workshop trained the rural bankers on mobile phone banking, equipping them with the necessary skills and knowledge for its implementation. The workshop is also one of the requirements of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) for a bank to be accredited to offer MPBS via Globe’s GCASH platform. Rural banks must have a CAMELS rating of at least 3.0 or higher in the latest BSP examination, and must comply with the Anti Money Laundering Act (AMLA) to be accredited.
In his closing remarks, USAID/Philippines Deputy Mission Director Roger Carlson emphasized the advantages of new technologies such as mobile phone banking for rural banks and their clients.
