Microfinance and Consumer Loans

CBZ Bank Limited’s Microfinance Unit was established in March 1996. The unit was established as a result of a tripartite agreement between DFID (British Department for International Development), CBZ Bank Limited and Care Zimbabwe. DFID provided funding, CARE (Corporate Assistance for Relief Everywhere) Zimbabwe provided Technical Assistance and CBZ Bank Limited as the project implementer.

In an effort to `widen outreach, the bank has over the years partnered other organisations like DANIDA(Danish International Association Agency) 2000, SAFIRE(Southern Alliance For Indigenous Resources) 2000 and IDEAA(Initiative for Development And Equity In African Agriculture) 2001, and lately SOS (Societies Socialis meaning Social Social society or friends), Government of Zimbabwe, where these organisations provided loan guarantee funds.
