    The Head of Corporate SME and Retail on the Performance of the Premier Wallet

    Mr. Abdishakir Mohamed Afrah the head of corporate, SME, and Retail Premier Bank had an interview with Somali Magazine on “The Future of Banking in Somalia. ” Mr. Abdishakur joined Premier Bank in 2018. He is a banking expert with accumulated experience from various sectors. He has served in different fields as a Technology Expert, Certified Enterprise, Risk Management, Data Analysis, Innovative Research and Development.

    At the moment in Mogadishu there is a trending application that I am certain it’s from Premier Bank, What is the secret behind this Premier Wallet that has become visible all over shops in the city?

    Premier Wallet is a new mobile money transfer application that is multipurpose, helps in the purchase, direct withdraw and deposit of money on the account, and the application can be used by both account holders and non-account holders.

    In terms of figures, how many customers have subscribed to the Wallet currently so far?

    The wallet has been well received by the community, since its launch a few months ago, more than 100,000 customers have subscribed to the application.

    Well, how is it different from other money transfer systems from your bank and perhaps other service providers in the same field?

    This has indeed reflected positively on our public relationship, bridging the gap between our customers and the bank. Now customers can carry out any form of transaction and access another service at any place and any time. On top of it, you can easily open up your merchant account using your phone from anywhere without visiting the Bank or even having a bank account. In addition, there is still some difficulty in the coordination of service among the banking institutions here especially when it comes to interbank transactions. The charges when making transactions is still high compared to the international charges which are unrealistic.

    What are the steps being taken to overcome these standing blocks and bridge the gaps?

    When it comes to some none antagonistic issues we are in consultation with stakeholders both the public, international and private sector.  We are about to overcome the internal Interbank Transaction issue.

    We have also overcome many challenges. It is recognizable that Premier Bank as the Pioneer of ATM use in Somali played a big role to make it possible to operationalize master card use. So a lot is being done and can only see progress.

    What is your perspective about the Banking sector in Somali currently?

    There is a great transformation of the banking sector and Somalia is second to none in all of Africa when it comes to mobile money transfers. We do acknowledge that there are still some existing challenges paramount of all is the lack of national identification documentation to citizens which is vital for anyone to acquire the banking services.

    Is there any steps being taken to

     Where do you see the Banking Sector in the years to come?

    All in all, I can only see a silver lining. It is visibly evident when you look around the city there is tremendous development from business especially the housing sector, and this is highly attributed to a stabilizing financial system.
