Financial Inclusion: TAJBank brings service closer to FCT residents; opens 3 new branches  

Determined to sustain its drives to deepen financial inclusion and bring its innovative financial services closer to its growing customers in the Federal Capital Territory and nationwide, TAJBank has opened three new branches in Abuja.
 Chairman of the bank, Tanko Gwamna said the opening of the technology-powered new branches were part of the bank’s mission to serve as a catalyst to sustainable growth of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises’ (MSMEs) in Nigeria. 
The three new branches are located at the commercial markets Wuse, Garki and Gudu areas of the FCT.
Gwamna told customers who opened new accounts at the Wuse branch opening ceremony that bank would always be available to support their businesses to grow.
“By launching these branches in locations that are particular to the ecosystem of the businessman and women, we are fulfilling our mission of making seamless banking solution accessible to all businesses.
“Let me assure all our old and potential customers that TAJBank will continue to serve your interest and support every step you take to improve your business operations for profitability and your socio-economic well-being through interest-free loans and unparalleled quality service delivery”, Gwamna assured.
He said the bank’s management would help in leveraging the non-interest lender’s strive towards catalysing MSMEs’ productivity and profitability despite the lingering impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the economy.
The President of the National Association Nigerian Traders, Ken Ukaoha, commended TAJBank’s board and management for bringing the much-cherished interest-free banking services to the market men and women, especially at a time many other financial service providers are either closing their branch networks for flimsy excuses, or depressing traders with high interest rates. 
“We are happy that TAJBank is supporting Nigerian traders and we will also reciprocate their goodwill by encouraging traders to do business with the bank so as to facilitate a win-win experience for the bank and traders nationwide. Indeed, we would meet to strengthen the symbiotic relationship”, Ukaoha added. 
Within one year of its debut as a non-interest bank, TAJBank’s has continued to record successes since its opening in December 2019. 
The bank, which recorded unprecedented profit in its first year of operation, is currently expanding its branch networks, with plans to extend services to the six geopolitical zones of the country soon.
