Does a cashless society leave the regions behind?

Business owners in a small Bay of Plenty town say they'll fight to keep cash flowing in and out of its only bank. 

New Zealand Credit Union, the only bank operating in Murupara, hasn't been able to handle cash since the town's single ATM was ripped from its wall by thieves last week. 

Murupara business owners and residents met with Credit Union representatives and Pem Bird was there too.
