Frequently Asked Questions
Alat Hub is the financial inclusion hub of Wema Bank via agency banking services. Agent banking is the provision of financial services to customers by a third party (agent) on behalf of a licensed deposit taking financial institution and/or mobile money operator (principal- Wema Bank).
Agent banking also refers to the delivery of financial services outside conventional bank branches, through 3rd Parties who often use non-bank retail outlets and rely on electronic solutions like Mobile Phones, specialized devices, point of sale terminals etc. to service customers on the go.
- An agent is an entity/individual that is engaged by a financial institution to provide specific financial services on its behalf using the agent’s premises across various locations.
- An agent can be a super-agent (A super-agent is a licensed agent contracted by the bank and thereafter may subcontract other agents in a network while retaining overall responsibility for the agency relationship) or a Sole agent (A Sole agent is an agent who does not delegate powers to other agents but assumes agency relationship/responsibility by himself.)
We seek or provide our customers with the opportunity to access financial products and services without having to visit any branch.
