Tameer Bank wins the ‘Best Microfinance Bank’ and the ‘Bank the Unbanked’ awards at the country’s first ever Pakistan Banking Awards 2016, held at the Mohatta Palace, Karachi. These awards were given to banks that performed well and contributed significantly towards social impact and financial inclusion in Pakistan.
The first award category, ‘Bank the Unbanked’ recognizes Tameer Microfinance Bank for the work it has done on financial inclusion in Pakistan. As the first microfinance bank and the financial powerhouse behind Easypaisa, Tameer Bank has brought financial services to millions of Pakistanis, with over 75,000 touch points and more than 21 million active customers.
