Rural Banks Computerisation Project

Originally posted on Blackboard by Alexandra Quarles

I kept finding articles about small rural banks in Ghana that had found a lot of success with this program, so I wanted to go back and look at its beginnings. One of the major benefits of this program is that it was designed with rural banks in mind; the aim of the program is to “ensure access to financial services of people in the rural communities” with a focus on farmers. I think it’s also important that the government wants to focus on properly training bank employees to create a sense of confidence in the new system. I only hope that this infrastructure can be maintained over the next few years so that we can really see the benefits of the project.
