Karachi: Pakistan’s first scheduled and largest private sector microfinance bank, Tameer Bank, formally inaugurated its new branch in Gawadar, Baluchistan today. Tameer now has a footprint of over 135 locations across the country.
Nadeem Hussain, CEO of Tameer bank, inaugurated the branch along with senior members of the bank and representatives of Winrock International. Speaking on the occasion, he said: “Today is a historic day for Tameer, as we open our 2nd branch in Baluchistan. Providing access to financial services is fundamental in developing an eco-system to support the unprivileged. I am confident that Tameer’s presence in Gawadar will positively impact the remote coastal belt, especially by linking fishing communities of Karachi and Gawadar with the rest of Pakistan.”
This initiative is aimed at promoting financial and economic activities in Baluchistan through introduction of new means of business to the farmers, fishermen and other business folk of Baluchistan. Setting up of this branch was made possible by financial, logistic and administrative support by United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) through Pakistan Agriculture and Cold Chain Development Project (PACCD).
