If you are a small bank thinking about doing mobile banking, then you are where Abbas Ali Sikander, the group executive director of Tameer Microfinance Bank in Pakistan, was a year ago. He wondered then: "How does Tameer get to market rapidly without the burden of physical infrastructure investments, especially in rural areas?"

Branchless banking looked attractive, and mobile phones could help. With subscription numbers at over 50 million, mobile phones were already reaching rural Pakistanis who have no formal banking access. But which rural mobile phone users should he target? And how can he use mobile phones as a channel and as a service? Abbas knew that, without a clear strategic direction, he easily could get swept away by mobile phone operators who were already well known retail brands.
