Slide9:  Banking for the Unbanked: The Business Case for Malawi Key themes in case studies Identifying the “win-win” opportunities afforded through financial product innovations Innovative financial institutions recognise the business opportunities for ‘banking the unbanked’ Partnerships that build on the core capacities of each player Financial product innovations can create opportunities for broader business sectors Products need to be designed that are responsive to clients needs The private sector can work together with both government and secondary financial institutions to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes Slide10:  Banking for the Unbanked: The Business Case for Malawi Scenario #1 The Reserve Bank of Malawi is the key catalyst of the innovation, implementing it in government linked outlets and through donor projects but the commercial banks are not on board. Slide11:  Banking for the Unbanked: The Business Case for Malawi Scenario #2 The commercial banks take a leadership role in implementing the innovation with the technology provider (i.e. Malswitch) privatising. However, government and donor agencies are basically on the side-line of the implementation of the product innovation. The points of sale are therefore exclusively in banks and commercial enterprises. Also, the secondary financial institutions have not been included in rolling out the product innovation. Slide12:  Banking for the Unbanked: The Business Case for Malawi A collaborative approach is endorsed whereby the key players come together and agree upon a comprehensive roll out of the product innovation. Key roles and responsibilities are identified at the outset and the key capacities of each participant are utilised. Scenario #3
