Assessment of Agent Networks in Nepal
This report focuses on assessing the existing agent networks in Nepal, so that the correct steps can be taken to popularise both access to and use of financial services through bank-led agent banking. After the release of electronic banking regulations in 2012, many financial institutions began developing their agent networks. The research on which this report is based focused on understanding the state of these agent networks. The research covered the three ecological areas (i.e., Terai, Hill and Mountain) across the five development regions of Nepal (i.e., Eastern, Central, Western, Mid-Western and Far Western).
