Ecobank Malawi Wednesday partnered social media platform Mikozi Network and musician Lucky Star Bonoface Ndamera in its drive to create awareness on financial inclusion.
The initiative is in line with the bank’s Ecobank Day scheduled for November 12.
Ecobank Head of Brand, Marketing and Corporate Communications Tidzi Chalamba said the bank is advancing an agenda where it intends to see no one left out of the financial services spectrum.
“As a leading pan- African Bank and a responsible corporate citizen, this year we are geared to drive financial inclusion and support towards persons with disabilities.
“We are, therefore, pleased to partner with Boniface Ndamera of the ‘Chinafuna M’bale’ fame to be our champion in driving awareness that disability is not inability,” Chalamba said.
Director of Mikozi Bright Chiligo said the bank has taken an exemplary step in working with Ndemera, who works hard to fend for his family despite being visually impaired.
Ecobank Day is an annual corporate social responsibility event where the bank focuses on giving back to the community.
This year, the initiative is taking place under the theme ‘Financial Inclusion for All-Leave No One Behind’.
