The Manager of the Direct Sales Unit at Kuwait Finance House (KFH) Nedal Ameen said that KFH's Mobi Baitok vehicles have made great strides in 2010, which is evident by the increase in amount of money withdrawn from the vehicles that reached 200%, and an increase in deposits in 2010 that reached 400%, compared to last year. He went on to say that the amounts of money withdrawn from Mobi Baitok by clients of other banks reached by 40%, where those clients can take advantage of the service through K-net.
It is worth noting that KFH launched this service through three vehicles that offer basic banking services, and that those vehicles are found in vital areas, especially at locations where the infrastructure there does not allow for ATM machines to be installed. He revealed that the significant increase in the number of people benefitting from this service reflects their satisfaction, which prompted KFH to take into consideration increasing the number of Mobi Baitok vehicles to reach six during this year, in order to cover more areas and service more people. He added that the total amount of money withdrawn during 2010 reached 76% compared to last year, which encouraged KFH to take into consideration increasing its ATM machines at malls and banks. He revealed that KFH owns a huge machine at Al-Salam Hospital that allows clients to withdraw US dollars, Euros, and UAE dirham. This service was launched in March 2010, and is highly welcomed by clients.
