Managing Director of the bank, Mr. Tony Okpanachi, disclosed this at the on-going Spring Meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank in Washington DC, USA.

In a presentation to a team of the World Bank Group and international investors on the achievements of DBN and its plans for the future, Okpanachi said that his team was working assiduously to achieve a disbursement level of about N100 billion at the end of this year, which could be scaled up to N389 billion at the end of 2023, when the bank marks five years in active lending operations.

According to him, the Partnering Finance Institutions (PFIs) had grown from two in 2017, when DBN started operations to 22 at the end of 2018, adding that the target for 2019 was to raise the number of PFIs to 30. Okpanachi stated: “Financial sustainability is our key focus from first day with steady profits in the last two years and a robust projection for 2019 and beyond.”
