Wema Bank on Wheels is a new initiative for the people of Nigeria. To provide better access to banking services, all Wema Bank Plc customers now have the opportunity to take care of their accounts via a solar-powered mobile bank. This traveling bank is solar-powered and even won an award for its sustainable design.

Damola Bolodeoku, head of eBusiness at Wema Bank explains, “For everyone we (Wema Bank) have not been able to reach through our internet banking, mobile banking or USSD banking services; Wema Bank is on wheels and it is coming to you wherever you may be.”

Since there are a number of underserved communities that struggle to get to a branch, Wema Bank Plc now comes to them. All regular branch services and automatic teller machines are offered and customers can find out when the mobile will be near them by contacting the head office.
