e-lavo, banking made convenient

Wednesday, March 07, 2018

HFC BANK has taken convenience of banking to another level with its e-lavo agency banking.

Customers now have access to banking services beyond normal banking hours through agent outlets. Over 23 Vodafone and Valuefone outlets around Fiji have signed up and started providing this service all over Fiji.

e-lavo agency banking is a partnership between Vodafone Fiji, Pacific Financial Inclusion Program (PFIP) and HFC Bank.

On Saturday, February 3, HFC Bank conducted a successful service at the Valuefone Shop in Korovou.

The event attracted scores of interest from around the area, for account opening, withdrawals and deposits.

Now with their HFC Bank ATM card, these customers can simply walk next door to deposit their day's takings. Through HFC Bank's e-lavo agency, communities in and around Korovou like Wainibuka, Namena, Dawasamu, Waimaro and other remote locations can now conduct their banking at Valuefone Korovou rather than travel all the way to Nausori.

The next e-lavo roadshow is scheduled for Rakiraki before the end of this month.

The first of its kind in Fiji, e-lavo offers convenience and accessibility to HFC Bank customers giving customers the freedom to withdraw, deposit, transfer funds, pay bills and top up their phones through e-lavo agency outlets strategically located around Fiji.

HFC Bank CEO Rakesh Ram said "this is one of the very innovative banking solutions for our existing and potential customers, which is also part of our community service agenda by making basic banking services more accessible and convenient to the people of Fiji."

Since its launch in September last year, over 23 outlets now offer this exclusive HFC Bank service.
