5 new banks set to open by mid-2009

Following the success of Community Banks in Tanzania, 5 new community banks a set to open within a year's time. Currently, there are 7 community banks in operation in Tanzania, namely, Dar Es Salaam Community Bank, Kilimanjaro Cooperative Bank, Mbiga Community Bank, Mwanga Rural Community Bank, Mufindi Community Bank, Kagera Farmers Cooperative Bank and Uchumi Community Bank.

I got a chance to do some business with some of the banks when I was at UTT. And I was really impressed!
