Choose the right account for you - Affordable banking

Choose an Account that suits your transaction style. BSP has two Kundu Accounts available for its customers; the Kundu Standard Account and the Kundu Package Account. Both are designed specifically to suit different customers.

  • The Kundu Standard Account is for customers who do not use their accounts frequently. The Kundu Standard has no monthly maintenance fee; there is no requirement for a minimum balance and it is a pay as you go account. This means that, you are charged for each transaction that you perform and the less transactions you do, the less you pay.

  • For customers who frequently use their account, the Kundu Package Account is suitable for you. This Account does not charge for individual transactions, and therefore, you can do multiple transactions via your account. At the end of the month, your account is charged K9.50.

Both accounts give you access to Mobile Banking, Internet Banking and a KunduCard or the chip enabled Visa Debit Card.


Manage your Banking for Convenience

Pay attention to how you transact or use your account. Plan your Banking and your spending. For example, if you are going to spend K20 per day for 5 days in a week, it is better to withdraw K100 and budget for the week, rather than visiting the ATM each day to withdraw K20. Daily visits to the ATM, will be time consuming and may be more costly for you.

You can Purchase EasiPay and Mobile Credits via Mobile Banking. There is no need to visit shops to do this.

If you want to send money to your family, you can simply do a transfer from your account to their account via Mobile Banking or Internet Banking. You can do this in the comfort of your home, office or while you are on the go.

Use the services of a BSP Agent or a Sub Branch near you. BSP Agents and Sub Branches are located in your community for convenience. You don't need to travel into main towns or cities to do your basic banking. Do your banking in your community.
