SBP Issues Licence to U Microfinance Bank

Ufone-logoUfone has been granted licence to operate national wide U Microfinance Bank (formerly Rozgar Microfinance Bank Limited) by State Bank of Pakistan, with which it intends to offer branchless banking in future.

Arif Sirhindi will be president and CEO of U Microfinance Bank, who possess rich experience of consumer banking with various bank including Askari Bank Limited, the partner of Zong for Timepey.

Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) initiated talks for acquisition of banking shares in March after State Bank of Pakistan suggested it to buyout a bank instead of getting new licence to establish new bank, which it earlier applied for.

Rozgar Microfinance Bank Limited was a district-wide microfinance bank (MFB) operating in Karachi district with one branch and 6 service centres.

In August, 2012, Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) was allowed by SBP to acquire 100 percent shareholding of Rozgar Microfinance Bank Limited on the condition that PTCL would enhance the status of this microfinance bank into a nationwide MFB within one year by bringing in a professional management team.

PTCL honored its commitment and managed Rs 1 billion mandatory assets for the banks so far.

After completion of all relevant formalities and change in name of Rozgar MFB to U Microfinance Bank Limited, SBP issued a nationwide Microfinance Banking Licence to U Microfinance Bank Limited.

    BEST WAY TO HAVE GOOD AMOUNT TO START A GOOD BUSINESS or TO START LIVING A GOOD LIFE…..I was so confused and into severe poverty about a month ago. I was just going through some blog online when I met a testimony of this BLANK ATM CARD made by REX TECH of email address: +2348143928114 ([email protected])
    .com I contacted that very address and I got one at an imaginable rate.(compared to what the card carries,the rate is minimal) At first I thought,it was gonna be some scam or something. But when I got the card I could get nothing less that £30,000 in a day. (Thirty thousand pounds). Here is testimony I saw; “Its the programmed ATM card that can hack into all ATM machines. Its works with any currency and in any country where you might be living. Its is programmed in a way that when transaction is carried out with the card ,it can’t be traced. To make use of this card ,you need no account number or even pin of anyone. Its simple because there is a manual attatched that teaches usage ,and also give more explanation concerning the card.” So friends,its a new year and a new beginning. If you need funds to start up some business or money to live a good life? Then you gat to make this opportunity yours. Though is illegal as you and I know ,but since government can’t satisfy my whole needs, I have to do what I have to do,to get what I want and for my family to be happy..Though this post is not for everybody,but for those who truly need change from a poor state to a wealthy life. A way to say happy new year to you and you out there. The email address once more is +2348143928114 ([email protected])
