On 12 April 2017, for this venture CIT hired Sunrise Bank Ltd as an agent for remitting collection money of unit holders from South korea to Nepal. However, CIT aims to collect fund in foreign currency, therefore, CIT send proposal to central bank of Nepal for approval of conducting foreign curreny account in foreign banks.

In accordance with the project mandated by Ministry of Finance(GON) ,CIT has made its saving and investment product by receiving feedback from Product Development Workshop on 11-12 November 2016 with technical consulting supported by ACCESS Advisory ( a consulting firm that has been supporting financial inclusion and remittance building initiatives through technical service assistance to financial service providers being hired by IFAD ). This is the first stepping stone for CIT for collecting fund from Diaspora Nepali citizen.
