Is there a bank branch in the municipality of your residence? Or do you live in one of the 100 that does not have an ATM?
HAVANA TIMES – I am not going to the core – economists and economic actors are already talking about this. I am simply waiting – I am limiting myself to a purely operational aspect of bank access because a car without gasoline, solar energy or tires does not work, at least from what I can see.
*100 of the 168 municipalities that Cuba has, do NOT have ATMs.
*Of the 13 municipalities in the Granma province, ONLY 3 have ATMs. Is it an exception? No, there are other locations with a similar situation. Another: how many banks have branches in the provincial capitals, I am not even saying in municipalities?
*Of the population over 65 years of age (2,478, 087), how many have cell phones? How many of them have a Transfermovil or another card and know how to use it? Ask them to use the QR code? Is there a bank branch in the municipality of your residence? Or do you live in one of the 100 that does not have an ATM?
And now two questions a bit more in depth:
1. Does the banking network guarantee the existence of money in the ATM trays?
2. Does the provider, which is the Central Bank of Cuba, have money in its dwindling coffers?
