bKash is a mobile banking platform, for Bengalis to send and receive money safely via mobile phones. Financial exclusion is a big problem in Bangladesh, where 70% of the population live in rural areas, and less than 15% are connected to the formal banking sector. bKAsh partners include BRAC Bank, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Grameenphone and the International Finance Corporation.
