Driven by the nudge of advancing the cause of grassroots development, the Umuchinemere Pro-credit Microfinance bank has opened an office in the remote sub-urban settlement of Ugbo Odogwu in the Phase 6 area of Trans Ekulu areas of Enugu metropolis.
The Customer Meeting Point (CMP) was a well thoughtout idea of the Board and Management of the bank to avail the local resident of Ugbo Odogwu who are predominantly farmers, artisans and petty business people with micro credit funds and other small financial services to enhance their living status and reduce their poverty line.
Speaking on the occasion, chairman of the bank, Rev. Prof. Obiora Ike, commended a member of the bank's family and traditional ruler of Ebe in the Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State, Igwe Raphael Ani, for providing the bank with the apartment to accommodate the new office in the settlement.
He said the bank had a mission of making life meaningful for the active poor people in the society, which prompted the bank to bring its activities to the people of the area.
The Managing Director of the bank, Mrs. Nnenna Ekete, implored the local residents to be bold and do business with the bank, without any encumbrance to them. She said the bank offered affordable products and services and they should not fritter away the opportunity.
In his speech, Igwe Ani extolled the bank for opting to better the lives of the poor in the society, especially in accepting to establish an office in Ugbo Odogwu.
He described the bank as small but great with lots of potentials which people should not ignore.
Chairman of Ugbo Odogwu community neighbourhood association, Ogbuefi Donatus Onyema, prayed for the progress of the bank, assuring that the people of the area will not only avail themselves of the products and services provided by the bank, but will give it every support to sustain the office.
