Easypaisa has entered into an agreement with Artistic companies, Artistic Fabric & Garment Industries Pvt. Ltd. (AFGI) and Artistic Apparels (AA) for salary disbursement through Easypaisa Mobile wallet services. Artistic is one of the biggest names in denim manufacturers in Pakistan, supplying denim products to leading multinational brands globally.
The Easypaisa Salary Disbursement solution offers both a cost effective and time efficient solution for salary disbursement to employees in remote locations and those employees who do not have a bank account. The salary is instantly disbursed to the employee’s mobile account and an SMS is received by the customer confirming the same. Employees have the convenience of withdrawing salaries from over 75,000 Easypaisa locations and 1Link ATM’s across Pakistan. Furthermore, the solution allows employees to withdraw salaries in any denomination, transfer funds to family or friend’s mobile account and pay utility bills.
Sharing his thoughts on the development, Aslam Hayat, Acting CEO, Telenor Microfinance Bank, said, “We are glad to extend Easypaisa’s Salary Disbursement Solution to support AFGI & AA. Easypaisa, with the help of its expansive network of agents all over the country, will be instrumental in facilitating smooth and convenient salary disbursement. The agreement comes in connection with Easypaisa’s commitment to facilitate everyday transactions as part of its long term socioeconomic empowerment goals. We will continue to develop partnerships and support interoperability to enhance financial inclusion in Pakistan.”
Speaking on the occasion, Executive Director Mr. Ahmed Javed at AFGI, said, “At AFGI we believe in always investing in our team and finding new ways to interact with our employees. Through Easypaisa not only are the payments easier, but our staff now also has easy access to micro loans, that go a long way in securing our workers’ future. Through digital wallets, we aim to elevate the lives of those at Artistic into a new era of automated convenience.”
