The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has supported Pakistan’s digital financial ecosystem by implementing several initiatives such as the Roshan Digital Account and the Raast instant payment system. In this context, the central bank recently awarded preliminary clearance to a new fintech’s application for an Electronic Money Institution (EMI) license.
Akhtar Fuiou Technologies (AFT) will shortly begin a pilot operation for its e-wallet business after receiving approval. The company wants to change Pakistan’s economic and technological environment in order to increase financial inclusion quickly.
