IN an effort to expand its footprint in Zambia, First Capital Bank yesterday announced the opening of the sixth agency in the country.
Addressing the media at the new branch situated in the heart of the Lusaka industrial area, First Capital Bank chief executive officer Jitto Kurian said the establishment has so far grown its market share and would continue serving the Zambian market.
Kurian said the Chinika agency would offer the industrial community in-branch solutions, as well as online and digital solutions to help address customer banking preferences.
“First Capital Bank is pleased to announce the opening of a new agency in the Industrial area of Lusaka, situated at the Chinika Heavy Industrial Area along Katanga Road in Lusaka. The Agency opened on 25 November 2019 and our full complement of staff is already servicing clients based in the industrial hub,” Kurian said.
He said as a full-service agency, the Chinika branch would provide an extensive array of consumer and commercial products and services, as well as other financial products.
Kurian added that the bank looks forward to supporting the thriving commercial and small to medium business enterprises in this area.
“Bringing banking to this part of Lusaka was both important and necessary because the industrial area plays an essential part in the Zambian economy,” he said.
Kurian said First Capital Bank customers’ needs are at the core of its business and would continue to shape its service offerings and solutions around the institution’s clients’ and individual needs because the bank wanted them to bank where, when and how they want.
First Capital Bank is a part of the Mauritius based FM Capital Holdings PLC, which has banking operations in Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
“First Capital Bank Zambia offers a comprehensive portfolio of lending, transactional banking and investment products servicing the needs of the corporate, commercial and retail markets. The bank currently has a number of branches based in Lusaka, Ndola and Kitwe,” said Kurian.
