Even most of the existing banks operate in cities and towns where significant customers exist to secure financial viability since all commercial banks operate for profit. Thanks to the advancement of information and communications technology in the banking sector commercial banks can provide banking services through mobile banking technology. However, in spite of the implementation of mobile banking technology in Ethiopia through commercial Banks the numbers of users of the services are very small as compared to other countries like Kenya.
