RBAP-MABS prepares Luzon rural banks for mobile phone banking accreditation

The USAID-supported RBAP-MABS program conducted a mobile phone banking accreditation seminar at Legend Villas, Mandaluyong City on November 22. Held in partnership with G-Xchange, Inc. (GXI), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Globe Telecom, the training was attended by 22 participants from 10 Luzon-based banks, namely: Country Rural Bank of Taguig, Builders Rural Bank, Rural Bank of Pilar (Bataan), Rural Bank of Cabuyao, Rural Bank of Paete, Rural Bank of Taal, Community Bank (RB Alfonso), First Macro Bank, Rural Bank of Agoo, and Sampaguita Savings Bank.
The participants were trained on GXI’s GCASH platform and mobile phone banking fundamentals, including step-by-step procedures and service implementation. Simulations and hands-on-exercises were done to build on the skills of the participants. Each went home with new knowledge, skills and CD manuals to help them in the implementation of Mobile Phone Banking Services using the GCASH platform.
Ultimately, qualified banks were provided with a complete accreditation kit necessary to apply for BSP accreditation in order to offer mobile phone banking services. To date, MABS has already seen to the accreditation of over 65 rural banks with approximately 950 branches and other banking offices offering MPBS via the GCASH platform.
MPB accreditation for Mindanao Rural Banks is scheduled this December in Davao City.
