AB Microfinance Bank opens four new branches
As part of efforts to promote financial inclusion and contribute to the nation’s social and economic development, AB Microfinance Bank, a national Microfinance bank licensed by the Central Bank of Nigeria officially opened four additional branches in June and July 2017 bringing the branch network of the bank to 20 spread across Lagos, Oyo and Ogun states.
Two new branches were opened in Ogun State (Abeokuta branch & Sango-Otta branch), one in Oyo state (Bodija branch) and one in Lagos State (Aruna, Ikorodu branch).
Speaking during the branch opening ceremonies, William Bonilla, managing director/Chief Executive Officer of the bank, said the new branches were opened in furtherance of the banks mission to contribute to the social and economic development of the Nigerian populace and help in reduction of poverty. He added that the banks contribution in the provision of a wide range of financial services to Micro, Small and Medium scale entrepreneurs through a wide range of savings and lending products is unrivalled in the Nigerian Microfinance industry.

He further added that patronage of the banks products and services have been on the increase since the branch began operations in January 2017.
