“This collaboration will enable the FDB to reach out to more Fijians and is specifically targeted to provide more convenience to those of our customers in the rural and maritime zones and who are registered for Digicel’s MyCash platform,” said Minam.
“MyCash mobile wallet allows the customers to have electronic cash available at their fingertips and provide a way to make fast, reliable, safe, and convenient financial transactions including attending to loan repayment all at the convenience of their mobile phone,” he said.
“FDB customers can make loan payments by scanning QR code at any FDB branches Fiji wide and through short code *888# USSD dial-in service. This brings about convenience on both parties, the customer and the FDB,” he said.
