As part of attempts to reach its financial inclusion target, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) had anchored a goal of 64 new customers per branch every month for microfinance banks (MFBs) in the country.

In a report to all MFBs that was endorsed by the CBN Director, Other Financial Institutions Department, Mrs Tokunbo Martins, posted on the central bank’s website, each branch of MFBs in the country was required to gather 774 new accounts annually.

It stated that in a bid to mobilise stakeholders on the Revised National Financial Inclusion Strategy (NFIS 2.0) and accelerate progress towards the achievement of the target, the CBN had held a stakeholders‘ forum for all financial service providers in the six geopolitical zones in the first and second quarters of 20l9 which was attended by representatives of MFBs.

“The objective of the Forum was to expose stakeholders to the detailed provisions of the Revised Strategy (NFIS 2.0) and their expected roles/responsibilities in the financial inclusion agenda.
