Finance agent
Status: Proposed (under way)
Proposed by: DSMap
Tagging: finance agent=*
Applies to: node
Definition: Like banks, local businesses can perform financial activities such as transfers and payments services.
Drafted on: 2016-10-27
RFC start: 2016-11-11


The idea is to know the corresponsal agences, services with limited financial activities. In Peru, these activities are similar to bank and they are operating in kiosk or convenience stores. In addition, businesses can be transferred to other accounts and make payments of public and private services. Agencies can not receive or send too much money for security reasons.

This should not be confused with Merchant bank.
