Wema Bank has surprisingly opened a new branch in Aba, Abia State in a bid to capture the Eastern region market just like that!
Aba is a popular market in Nigeria known to be the commercial capital of Abia state and one of the leading industrial cities in Eastern Nigeria. It hosts 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 Wema bank 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 will offer customers the latest in banking technology through alternative channels offered by Wema Bank.
Wema Bank has also provided alternative channels to ensure those who are too busy to walk into the new branch can still bank with Wema using their electronic devices.
One of these digital offerings is ALAT, the first fully digital bank in Nigeria. ALAT offers customers 10% interest on their savings and allows them save together as a group, mimicking the local Esusu and Ajo schemes. International purchase can also be done without a physical debit card using the ALAT virtual dollar card.
The new branch is located at 103 Azikiwe Road, Aba, Abia State and now open to customers.
