Banking on the move

A phone company in Pakistan is using the nation's love for the gadget to encourage mobile banking.



    A telecommunications company is offering millions of people in Pakistan without bank accounts the chance to make financial transactions at the touch of a button.

    Individuals can only send a limited amount of money per transaction, and a monitoring system has been put in place to track down any suspicious remittance.
