Introducing the Agency Banking Certification Program by CIBN

The Agency Banking Certification (ABC) program by CIBN is a certification program designed to equip individuals with comprehensive knowledge and practical skills in agent banking. Agent banking is crucial for financial inclusion and aims to create access points, ultimately eradicating poverty.

What is Agent Banking?

Agent banking refers to a financial service delivery channel where traditional banking services are provided by authorized agents rather than through a brick-and-mortar bank branch.

These agents can be individuals, businesses, or entities authorized by a financial institution or a bank to offer a range of banking services on their behalf.

When you withdraw money from a POS shop by the roadside, you are dealing with an agent banker. No more long queues in the banking hall. This is the future of financial services in Nigeria.
