Ticking off our first destination on our itinerary let us move on to our final and last destination “The Signboard”. “The Signboard” showcases the tools provided by Teknospire (such as MAKash e-wallet and Lean banking solutions provided to the MannDeshi foundation ) that can be of use to the agent bankers in achieving financial inclusion. However, let us walk through the ways in which agent bankers can contribute to financial inclusion before we arrive at our landmark signboard.

The ways by which agent bankers can become catalysts are :-

  • They conduct classes to educate people on the financial matters and create financial awareness.
  • They sign up with a financial institution like a bank and start providing agency banking services.
  • They initially handhold the customers to use different tools and then gradually wean them off the hand-holding by either making the customers self -reliable or by building a hierarchy of agent bankers below them to handle specific areas.


Having walked through the above ways we are here at the sign board that displays Teknospire’s tools. Request you to have a good look at it before we return back to our point of origin.
