  3. 3. bKash 3 Introduction The digital revolution continues to transform most aspects of our daily life. In particular, the digital revolution has resulted in the vertical convergence of business channel capacities [1]. The digital revolution also continues to transform the public sector organizations and services. For instance, the DMP (Dhaka Metropolitan Police) receive GD (General Diary) application via online, Passport application, TIN (Tax Identification Number) registration, University admission etc. are also submitted through online. Other examples are Train tickets bought via mobile phones, online purchases, and social interactions made via SMS, emails and social networks. A next step in the digital revolution is the transformation of the time honored traditional physical wallet into the e-wallet. bKash is one of the largest mobile financing company of the country. It is also witnessing high growth. However, growth in the mobile financing industry is showing signs of growing. Hence, I tried to portray an overview of the mobile financing industry of Bangladesh and analyze bKash performance compared with DBBL Mobile Banking. bKash is a mobile money system in Bangladesh operating under the jurisdiction of Bangladesh Central Bank as a subsidiary of BRAC Bank, a local bank. The service aims to serve users at the bottom of the economic pyramid (BOP) ensuring a broader range of financial services across Bangladesh’s population as a whole. The service uses a USSD interface, accessible via a basic handset, offers no cashing-in fee and low cashing-out and person-to-person transfer fees. These elements provide a system by which BOP users can send money in a way that is fast, secure, and affordable. Launched in July 2011, the service now has 2.2 million registered customers. Company Profile BKash Limited, a subsidiary of BRAC Bank, started as a joint venture between BRAC Bank Limited, Bangladesh and Money in Motion LLC, USA. In April 2013, International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, became an equity partner and in April 2014, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation became the investor of the company. The ultimate objective of bKash is to ensure access to a broader range of financial services for the people of
  4. 4. bKash 4 Bangladesh. It has a special focus to serve the low income masses of the country to achieve broader financial inclusion by providing services that are convenient, affordable and reliable. More than 70% of the population of Bangladesh lives in rural areas where access to formal financial services is difficult. Yet these are the people who are in most need of such services, either for receiving funds from loved ones in distant locations, or to access financial tools to improve their economic condition. Less than 15% of Bangladeshis are connected to the formal banking system whereas over 68% have mobile phones. These phones are not merely devices for talking, but can be used for more useful and sophisticated processing tasks. BKash was conceived primarily to utilize these mobile devices and the omnipresent telecom networks to extend financial services in a secure manner to the under-served remote population of Bangladesh. Objectives of the Study In Recent days mobile financing industry become very much comprehensive. It deals with different areas to capture the market & it requires huge promotional activities to survive. Beside this it takes huge effort to known this system with general people. Moreover, they have to come up with different innovative ideas to have a position in the market. Thus, the study covers a broad spectrum such as Service, price, promotion, government, regulation etc. Based on the above facts the specific objectives of the study follows:  To give an overview of Mobile financing industry in Bangladesh  To find out about the future prospects in the industry.  To evaluate the performance of bKash.  To evaluate the competitiveness of bKash in the market.  To get an insight of the products of bKash.
  5. 5. bKash 5 Background and opportunity In Bangladesh, as with many other countries in the developing world, people travel to urban centers to earn a livelihood so they can support families in rural areas. One fundamental insight driving the development of bKash was to cater for this growing class of workers, creating an efficient system by which they could send money home in a secure, fast and affordable way. bKash came up with a simple USSD interface, accessible by the cheapest (i.e. $15) handset. “Smartphones would make it easy to implement mobile money, but the service would then be limited to only affluent customers and would defeat the purpose of reaching the unbanked and poor.” Registering for bKash and cashing-in services are free of charge. For person-to-person transfers, customers pay a flat fee of BDT 2 (or $.02) irrespective of the size of the transaction. In case a customer wants to cash-out, there is a flat fee of 1.85% on the amount withdrawn. For example, if a user wants to cash-out BDT 50, the cash-out fee is BDT 0.92 (or $.01). “Many bKash customers have such small tickets, but their large volume compensates for the apparent small ticket size.” As per the central bank’s prescription, bKash deposits the full value of its customers’ wallet balances in a designated BRAC Bank account, which is under the surveillance of the central bank. Separately, BRAC Bank maintains the record of all individual bKash accounts in its own system. “In the process, bKash maintains an arrangement that is cost effective, but stays fully under the central bank’s jurisdiction.” Once users have electronic money in their bKash mobile wallets, they can send the money to another bKash mobile wallet instantly. Recipients can walk to bKash retail agents who give physical cash in exchange for electronic money and charge service fees. “bKash’s focus on reaching the poor distinguishes it from services that have fees for cash-in or a minimum cash-out fee.”
  6. 6. bKash 6 Mobile Banking The massive improvement of technologies around the world brings an opportunity to improve the technological platform of banking sector. The goal of the extending service of banks with improve technology is to satisfy the desire of customers. One of the extending services with modern technological advancement is Mobile Banking. In this process of banking customer are allowed to access into the banking system in anytime from anywhere. The requirements for this process are to have a mobile device and mobile network connection. The core benefit of this mobile banking is to reach to the people who do not have the access in internet banking or in normal banking procedure. It is mostly helpful for the people of remote areas (GSMA Mobile and Development Intelligence, 2012). According to Raseda Sultana, millions of people across the developing nations are relying on informal economic activities for their living and most of these people are from the bottom stage of the pyramid. These mass populations do not have the access into the basic financial services or the regular banking system. This mobile banking brings the opportunity for these people to get the banking facility. Now the reason why “mobile banking” is getting greater emphasize because more there are than 4 billion mobile subscribers who represent 61% population of world. So it is the best way to reach among the biggest portion of world population. Also, mobile banking needs less processing than general banking process. It helps the banks to reduce cost, requires less storage facility. Mobile Banking is also better process among all the other e-banking process. In internet banking there has the higher risk then mobile banking due to hacking system. Also to use internet banking people needs extra skills to use computer. On the other hand, to use Mobile Bank, customers’ needs to have the basic idea about how to operate mobile in daily life. So to use this mobile banking a great level of awareness is not needed to create. It is said that mobile banking is one of the best thing ever happened in the personal finance management. Through this process customers will keep them attached with the banking system all the time. This mobile banking is still in growing business. In some countries mobile banking is become very much popular while in some countries it is just in the beginning stage. Though it is in an emerging stage but already mobile banking has created a good level of impact in world economy.
  7. 7. bKash 7 World View of Mobile Banking According to Mas (2010) a financial revolution is happening in money transactional world and it is not only happening only in the skyscrapers of rich countries but also in the slums of developing countries. This revolution is happening through the branchless banking system of mobile banking. Mobile Banking first introduced in 2001. From 2001 to 2006 there were only 10 Mobile Banks were in world. In 2009 it increased up to 25, in 2010 it increased up to 38 and in the middle of 2011 this number of mobile bank increased up to 50. Surprising by the end of 2011 this number reached up to 140 m-commerce organizations. The major mcommerce boom has happened in African region following by Asian countries (Michael U. Klein, 2011) In African Nations, different mobile companies are coming with the mcommerce business. Orange mobile company is running an m-commerce business with brand name of Orange Money mobile banking. They are running this business in Mali, Senegal, Madagascar, Kenya, Ivory Coast and Niger. Since 2008 they have signed up 1 million people. Though there are multiple mobile banks are working in African nations but the real impact has been made by M- Pesa. M-Pesa is a mobile bank which is a subsidiary of Vodafone. Only in Kenya, M-Pesa register more than 13 million customer, while in Tanzania, M-Pesa has 6 Million customers and in 2010 in total 670 million transactions generated through this mobile banking service. In Latin America potion Telefonica is giving the service of mobile banking in four countries. Among those countries in Brazil, mobile banking is establishing its place in good speed. It is believed that after Africa, Latin America is the place where mobile bank will have greater success. In Latin America only 35 percent people have bank account while 90 percent people have mobile phones. In northern American side, in USA almost 20% people are using mobile banking service in regular purpose. In Asian side mobile banking is also on the way of success. In Pakistan, where are only 14% regular banking subscribers in there already 500,000 customers are already subscribed with mobile banking (http://www.thecitizen.co.tz). This mobile banking is also successful in South Korea, Japan, China and Malaysia. In Japan, there are already more than 1.5 million active mobile banking users and it is increasing. Maldives and Bangladesh are also joining in this race. In India till now 77 banks have received the approval for mobile banking. Though mobile banking have a greater success in world-wide it is not seen the success in the European region yet. It’s already failed in Spain, Austria and some Scandinavian countries. In Germany, in 2003 there were 22 banks were giving mobile banking service but in 2006 it reduced into 14. It is believed that after the establishment of 3G service in all over the Europe, then mobile banking may have success in Europe.
  8. 8. bKash 8 Infrastructure for Mobile Banking Mobile Banking service can be provided in two different processes. One of these are Banks can directly give the mobile banking service towards the customer. In this process banks are having their own network system. On the other hand, in other process banks are using the 3rd party for giving this mobile banking service. In this process banks are having only the database system and the service providing duty is relying on the 3rd party. Now, based on these services providing process, service can be delivered in two different ways. These are application based (GPRS protocol) and the other one is SMS based. In most of the countries especially in the developing countries, SMS based mobile banking is using widely. It requires very low cost and low bandwidth and also it is easy to understand. Mobile Banking in Bangladesh Banking Bangladesh is 8th largest populated country in the world with around 161 million populations. In Bangladesh, almost 31.5% populations are living under poverty (The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA, 2013). From this huge population only 13% people have bank account. On the other hand, there are almost 90 million mobile phone subscribers in Bangladesh. From the point of view of Bangladesh, the expansion of e-banking is opposed by the problem of institutional, infrastructure and regulatory problems. Absence of central networking system, unskilled people and absence of proper policies are lacking behind the whole system. Bangladesh Bank is developing country’s payment system but by that time all the banks are not able to improve their ICT system. In this scenario, it’s hard to reach to mass people with current banking system. From this plot, the concept of mobile banking emerged to reach the banking facility to the unbanked people. People also take this system as good one as 69% people believe this “mobile banking” has prospect in Bangladesh (Bank, July 2012). Mobile banking is a new banking concept in Bangladesh. Bangladesh Bank is influencing banks to operate this mobile in a serious manner to reach to the unbanked people of Bangladesh. Bangladesh Bank believes that mobile is the easiest way to reach to the rural part of the country with the banking service. Still now, Bangladesh Bank has given license to 23 banks to run this mobile banking operation. Among these, 14 banks have full Mobile Financial Service permission and other 9 banks have the permission for international remittance transaction only through mobile. (Bank, July 2012)

These business applications are used to increase productivity, to measure productivity and to perform other business functions accurately. By and large, business software is likely to be developed to meet the needs of a specific business, and therefore is not easily transferable to a different business environment, unless its nature and operation is identical. Due to the unique requirements of each business, off-the-shelf software is unlikely to completely address a company's needs. However, where an on-the-shelf solution is necessary, due to time or monetary considerations, some level of customization is likely to be required. Exceptions do exist, depending on the business in question, and thorough research is always required before committing to bespoke or off-the-shelf solutions. Some business applications are interactive, i.e., they have a graphical user interface or user interface and users can query/modify/input data and view results instantaneously. They can also run reports instantaneously. Some business applications run in batch mode: they are set up to run based on a predetermined event/time and a business user does not need to initiate them or monitor them.

Announced today in advance of OFC, Liquid Spectrum is all about letting operators alter the optical network quickly -- turning capacity up or down, or deploying new wavelengths quickly. "The way operators in general have been building networks is very static," involving overbuilding to accommodate worst-case scenarios, says Helen Xenos, Ciena Corp. (NYSE: CIEN)'s director of portfolio solutions marketing. The applications run on top of Ciena's Blue Planet Manage, Control and Plan (MCP) platform, which handles network management and orchestration. The fanciest of the four new applications is the Wave-Line Synchronizer, which automates wavelength provisioning across multiple vendors' gear. This only holds gear that can be managed with MCP, of course. Similarly, the Liquid Restoration application can automatically dial capacity up to preserve service availability. The other Liquid Spectrum applications are rather straightforward. Performance Meter monitors the network's status, mainly with an eye toward network planning, and Bandwidth Optimizer suggests deployment plans for optical channels, including what path they should take. While MCP can manage certain types of non-Ciena gear, the Liquid Spectrum concept was created with Ciena gear in mind. Specifically, it's meant to take advantage of the WaveLogic
  22. 22. bKash 22 Ai chip, announced last year, which allows for bandwidth to be adjusted between 100 Gbit/s and 400 Gbit/s in 50 Gbit/s increments. Ciena isn't alone in trying to liquefy the optical network, of course. There's a race on to infuse transport networks with real-time flexibility and the principles of software-defined networking (SDN). Infinera, for instance, offers the Xceed Software Suite, which includes an SDN controller built from OpenDaylight code -- giving Infinera a chance to take shots at rivals' openness. Other contenders include the Network Services Platform (NSP) from Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK) and Transcend from Coriant .  Bkash now using vehicle management system developed by Arena Phone Arena Phone BD Ltd, 05th May 2015, Dhaka – Arena has successful implement its vehicle management software for bKash, Bangladesh. This software helps bKash to manage its office vehicle, including vehicle tracking, vehicle booking through SMS and web, driver management, log book management, repair and inventory management etc. By integration with live tracking system, bKash can now get instant update about the location of their vehicle together with driver information.

  24. 24. bKash 24 Recommendations While working with the report, there were certain things that came in front of my eyes which bkash, I think, should consider. The recommendations are:  Mobile financing services mainly depend on the technology so bkash need to improve their server as early as possible because some time the server down for one or two hour.  bkash need to promote their service by doing one to one marketing because of the complexity of the service.  The payment service of bkash is not satisfactory so that if they want to capture the urban people.  bkash need to introduce mobile recharge service as early as possible because most of the youth use DBBL mobile banking only because of this service.  International remittance service of bkash is not clear to everyone so that they need to promote that service with high priority.  In resent time Islami Bank Bangladesh introduce mobile banking service called MCash. So bkash need to have close observation on M-Cash, because they became the threat for bkash. Conclusion To run a profitable mobile/online/internet banking as a version of Electronic Banking in Bangladesh, Specific and Suitable Business Model is primary requirement. DBBL mobile banking, bKash and Citi Bank N/A are the successful banks whose model carries an importance in developing any new business model or to describe the model of business theory. It is my immense pleasure to conclude the report as a part of my internship program. The report is a reflection of my work, sincerity, credibility as well as coordination between me & bkash Limited. I tried my best to provide as much as information I could. As the industry is its early stage, companies tend to keep their information confidential. I consider myself lucky to be able to work in a company that provides such scope for learning. Certainly, this is very uncommon in Bangladesh. The work environment is also one of the best among the companies in Bangladesh. The mobile financing industry is growing at excellent pace. While it took only two year for bkash to reach 3 million, DBBL have 1 million within two year. Beside this all the other
  25. 25. bKash 25 companies have huge potential to increase their market share, because the industry is in very early stage. There is huge opportunity for the new interns in the industry. At the wrapping up it can be said the bkash limited still working hard to grab the market although they are the market leader with 71% market share. But the competition of this industry developed rapidly. But yet bkash is in a comfortable place in this industry but mot in a secure place. To retain the market leader position bkash is introduce new services. If they can continue to cater to the needs of their customers like they are doing now, they have a bright future ahead of them.
