“This is a differentiator in the market since the transfer is instant and doesn’t go through any manual intervention, customers are required to visit any BPR branch for sign up,” the bank officials said at the launch.

The BPR mobile banking platform was upgraded to include more features whereby customers can now transfer funds to other bank accounts instantly without having to go through clearing approvals or 3rd party checks.

To access this service, customers can register to any BPR or download the App for free.

In partnership with Rwanda Telcos – MTN and Tigo, BPR has also introduced Push and Pull services.
