Wema Bank, the pioneer of Nigeria’s first fully digital bank ALAT, has opened a new branch in Aba, Abia State, in line with its strategic expansion plan following a national license granted the bank by the Central Bank of Nigeria in 2015.
The new branch offers the Bank the opportunity to strategically target the Eastern market via one of the region’s top commercial nerve centers.
Aba is the commercial capital of Abia state and one of the leading industrial cities in Eastern Nigeria. It plays host a large number of international and local traders as well as lucrative small businesses and manufacturing establishments and sits strategically in the middle of the Eastern region.
The new branch will look to attract a significant share of this market segment as well as individuals and businesses from neighboring cities within the region by offering a comprehensive range of banking services including deposits and loans, trade services, and payment, as well as cash management solutions. The branch also promises to offer customers the latest in banking technology through alternative channels offered by Wema Bank.
