Karandaaz Pakistan is accepting applications from commercial banks, branchless banks, PSO/PSPs, Fintechs, non-banking financial institutions and entities that primarily focus on the excluded segments of the population, to apply for grants to scale up their pilots that generate new financial use-cases for digital channels.
Two categories that have been defined for this set of grants are savings and insurance. In savings, pilots that are testing the use-case generation in term deposits, periodic returns, and rotating savings and credit association (ROSCA), locally known as committee system will be focused.
In insurance, pilots that are geared to improve adoption of health, life, assets, and travel insurances through digital financial channels will be considered.
