The BIBF Students Go Cashless with bwallet
August 20, 2018
Manama, 20th August 2018 Arab Financial Services (AFS), the region’s leading FinTech enabler & payment service provider, has signed up with Bahrain Institute of Banking & Finance (BIBF), Bahrain’s leading provider of quality training and education, to enable fee payment for various courses offered by the institute through bwallet, a digital mobile wallet and payment solution.

bwallet is the first digital wallet to provide peer-to-peer money transfers and was launched earlier this year by AFS in partnership with Batelco, Bahrain’s leading digital solutions provider. Users can simply scan a QR code for seamless merchant transactions and enjoy secure cashless payments with exclusive benefits through their mobile phones. Aspiring students and professionals who are seeking to enhance their career prospects can pay for their courses today at BIBF using the bwallet.


On this occasion, Mr. B. Chandrasekhar, CEO of AFS said, “We are excited to tie up with BIBF and participate in the digitization opportunity at the institute. Students will now have the option to pay for their education using their mobile phone and experience digital payments. This tie-up will also allow us to deepen our relationship with the education sector in the Kingdom of Bahrain.”


The BIBF’s Director, Dr. Ahmed Al Shaikh said, “We are pleased to partner with Arab Financial Services to enable students have an easier and more convenient way to make payments on and around campus, as we are wholly committed to support the Kingdom of Bahrain in realizing its vision of becoming a digital cashless society.”
