NMB OPENS NEW BRANCH IN MANYONI
Manyoni. The NMB Bank Plc has opened a branch at Mitundu, Itigi in Manyoni as it brings its services closer to the people.
This brings the total number of NMB’s outlets across the country to 216, according to the bank’s head of Personal Banking, Mr Omari Mtiga.
NMB’s Mitundu branch is designed to serve residents of Kalangali, Mgandu, Rungwa, Mwamagembe, Mitundu and other locations close to the area.
Gracing the branch opening event, the acting district commissioner for Manyoni, Mr Miraji Mtaturu, said the presence of the outlet will revive residents in the areas of the burden of travelling for 70 kilometres all the way to Itigi in need of banking services.
“The opening of a branch here means that even the thugs who have been troubling residents as they go for banking services from here to Itigi will now be forced for find other jobs,” he said.
The branch, according to Mr Mtiga, will issue all services including account opening, loan issuance and cash withdrawals among others. Group loans, targeting small scale business operators will also be issued at the branch.
These loans will be issued through NMB Plc’s FANIKIWA Account which is specifically meant to cater to the needs of micro and small businesses.
“I urge you to get loans and grow your businesses. Do not take loans and spend the money on marrying more wives,’ said Mr Mtaturu.
