By Edward Vamboi

Sierra Leone Commercial Bank, rated as a very credible banking institution, is now very set and to celebrate its 47th Anniversary come 15 February 2020. As part of this year’s celebrations the bank will be having a sponsored walk in Freetown.

Since its establishment to serve as an engine of economic growth in the country, SLCB has remained true to its vision of being the country’s leading financial services provider delivering value to all stakeholders.

Celebrated today as the largest most profitable commercial bank in the country, SLCB boasts of over 300, 000 active customers nationwide with that number increasing as the bank continues to deepen financial inclusion with new grassroots branches, products and services.

SLCB Limited was founded on 15th February 1973 by the Government of Sierra Leone as sole shareholder to serve large corporations, small and medium enterprises and personal account holders.

It is Sierra Leone’s first fully indigenous bank with a wide range of world class services and thirteen branches across the country, with headquarters at Siaka Stevens Street and branches at Lightfoot Boston Street, Wilkinson Road, Cline Town, Kissy, Waterloo, Bo, Mobimbi, Njala, Kenema, Makeni and Port Loko.

Quite recently, it opened community kiosk banks at Goderich, Wilberforce and Jui in a further step to take banking services to the un-banked.

SLCB’s management across the country prides themselves on teamwork, innovation and high quality service to the bank’s customers that has resulted in the bank bagging several banking excellence awards.

Migrating dynamically into the 21st century banking culture of using ICT to provide customers with safe, speedy secure banking services, SLCB has efficiently incorporated mobile money platforms, automated banking and tailored credit facilities for a dynamic commercial banking market to achieve financial inclusion.

These include Mi Yone Online banking, Mi Yone mobile app, Mi Yone online direct, Mi Yone Teller, Mi Yone Kiosk, Swift money transfer, Western Union, etc.

The results of SLCB’s seamless transformation whilst growing its customer base show impressively in the bank’s last three annual financial statements that place it at number one on the Bank of Sierra Leone customer and profit rankings.
