Bangkok--11 Dec--KASIKORNBANK

KASIKORNBANK (KBank) introduces the "QR KBank" – an e-wallet application to grant an access to financial services for residents of Vientiane, Lao PDR, which will be effective on December 11, 2018. This application that offers cashless convenience in support of the policy of the Lao government is expected to serve around 2,000,000 transactions worth more than LAK36 billion.

Mr. Pattanapong Tansomboon, First Senior Vice President of KBank, said Lao PDR has exhibited continually high economic growth, but access to financial services has remained difficult. Only 26 percent of Lao population has bank accounts, due to a limited number of bank branches and ATMs, and complicated account opening processes. However, more than 91 percent of Laotians use mobile phones and 90 percent of the total get access to the internet via their mobile phones.

By leveraging the digital banking leadership in Thailand, KBank aims at capitalizing on digital service provision in Lao PDR. The "QR KBank" has been developed as an e-wallet application to offer greater convenience to Lao customers. Even without a bank account, the app can be used for mobile top-up and funds transfer, as well as QR Code payment. With this smart wallet in their mobile phones, customers no longer need to carry a large amount of cash.
