Allied Bank (ABL) has taken another step forward towards enhancing its footprint of Digital Banking by tapping the unbanked segments of the market to promote financial inclusion digitally.

The agreement was signed by Mr. Sohail Aziz – Chief, Digital Banking of ABL, Mr. Waqas ul Hasan – CEO Karandaaz and Mr. Salman Akhtar – who is CO-CEO of Techlogix Mobility.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Sohail Aziz mentioned,

“We take pride to be part of Innovation Challenge Fund of Karandaaz and are geared-up to play our part in financial inclusion of the SME sector. With this agreement we have entered into a new era of digital lending where merchants can get instant financing of their orders and that too digitally through our mobile app myABL using data analytics”.

Mr. Waqas ul Hasan shared that Karandaaz is optimistic that the partnership with ABL and Techlogix Mobility would result in an innovative lending model that will address the capital needs of the underserved SME sector. Efficient capital allocation will create much needed jobs and subsequently contribute to the economic growth of Pakistan.
