NMB customers up 30%

The number of consumers of National Microfinance Bank (NMB) has increased by 30 per cent from 600,000 to 1,700,000 for the past six years.
NMB Marketing Manager, Ms Shilla Hatibu Senkoro, said in Dar es Salaam that the bank branches have also increased from 100 to 140 countrywide, saying the bank has installed a total of 450 Automatic Teller Machines (ATM) to facilitate the services. 

 “About 1.6 NMB customers are using the ATM countrywide while 700,000 customers are using the NMB mobile services,” she said.

Ms Senkoro was speaking after announcing winners of draw dubbed ‘Ki college zaidi na NMB’ (More scholarly with the NMB), a promotion drive that aims at encouraging higher learning institution students to use bank services in which two University of Dodoma (UDOM) students won I pads in the draw.

She named the UDOM students who emerged winners with I pads as Chacha Mchemcho and Kelvin Gabone while four others took Sumsung Galax mobile phones and 30 others took the national team jerseys. 

“Ki-college promotion is for students with NMB account which helps them to win different rewards including Ipads, Samsung Galax and solar power lamps,” she said.

She further pointed out that a student can open an NMB Student Account with 10,000/- whereby a customer would be provided with NMB ATM card and that NMB Mobile service is free for any customer. 

“We have also introduced NMB Faraja initiative which helps customers with NMB Personal Accounts to get at least 600,000/- in case of personal or family problems,” she said.
