Malaita rural people increasingly join the ANZ rural Banking scheme
Mr Wakiorahu said since the launching of the scheme last year many people have joined. “Almost entire population of villages and areas around the province are now part of the scheme,” he said.
And he said many more are showing interest to joining the bank’s rural banking scheme. “Our rural banking scheme now stretches from Auki to West Are’are,” Mr Wakiorahu said.
In the eastern region, he said the scheme has reached Kwai. “Only transport link is a problem facing the province,” Mr Wakiorahu said. “Once proper road system is in place the bank’s service will cover the whole province.”
The rural banking scheme is a new initiative embarked by ANZ Bank to service the rural communities.
