JINJA residents are not happy with the banks for refusing to open branches in the area. This has made them feel as a periphery of Kampala, the Jinja LC5 boss, Hannington Basakana, has said.

“We have the capacity to make use of the bank services, but you have been skipping us. However, we are happy that you have listened to our pleas,” he said at the opening of the dfcu Bank Jinja branch on Lady Alice Muloki Road recently.

Juma Kisaame, the dfcu chief, said the bank aimed at building a strong partnership with the local community.

“In banking, partnership is about commitment. We ask you to pay back when you acquire loans because we are committed to giving you the best services.”

Opening the branch would open the door to both short and long-term finance facilities, he promised. “I have been lobbying the board to open up a branch here and convinced them that you would be able to utilise our services. Therefore, do not let me down,” Kisaame said.

The residents appealed to the Government to control inflation, saying it affected the saving culture.
