She further explained that zero-rating allows clients to apply for loans via the Microplan App without using mobile data or WiFi connection at any 24/7. However, the zero-rating service is currently available to Econet subscribers only and is expected to be extended to Netone and Telecel subscribers in due course.

“Clients will, however, need data to download the FBC Applications but once installed, no data will be required to transact on the platforms,” she said.

Microplan Financial Services (Private) Limited is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the FBC Holdings Group. The unit commenced operations in 2011 as a Strategic Business Unit (SBU) of FBC Bank before becoming a standalone outfit. Over the years, Microplan withstood the test of time and established itself as the top credit-only micro Financing institution, in a very competitive sector.
