Strategies and Opportunities for Rural Banks

What are the new strategies and  innovative ways that can be explored by RBs and eventually, adopted by the whole rural banking industry?   These are the diverse  and topical challenges faced by rural banks today as they try to find effective ways to better serve their clients.  Fortunately, experts from banking and finance discussed and presented several methods on how the  industry can resolve these issues during the RBAP Confederation/Federation President’s Meeting last Wednesday, October 25.  To give you a glimpse of what transpired at the SMX Convention Centre, we highly encourage our readers and followers to click the attached PDF and URL links below.
