Mudassar Aqil, CEO, Telenor Microfinance Bank/Easypaisa expressed his pleasure about the launch of the new feature by stressing the fact that we have to adopt new norms in our lives. “Much has changed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and as we slowly return to our daily routines, with certain restrictions, the ‘new normal’ standards apply to us all. We at Easypaisa acknowledge how the world and Pakistan in particular is dealing with uncertain times and we wish to offer the masses a unique way to care and protect those that they love the most.
