 ‘Today is an important day to BancABC Tanzania and especially the staff as apart from giving these donations which was in form of food stuff, but we had very rare opportunity to socialize together with children who are being raised and taken care of here. It was very emotional sharing happy moments together. They looked happy and our target was to make them feel loved and cared and at the same time show that they are living the same society just like others’, said Geva.

He added: Giving something to smile it’s our way of showing them that we care and give them hope to believe in the future. Our visit to these orphanage Centre has clearly stated why BancABC Tanzania has been embarking on supporting our surrounding communities in different ways. We will continue supporting our communities as believe they are part of what makes our business keep on growing’.

In his opinion the bank’s biggest pride and joy has always been the ability to change the lives of others and empower people to transform their own lives through different initiatives.

‘BancABC Tanzania, just like any other financial institution has been working tireless in delivering financial services close to Tanzanians, whereby now the bank has over 700 agents and 100 satellites in different districts in the country’, said Geva

The bank has loans for civil servants through the satellites which are available countrywide.
