UBA, A bank that made the difference by lending in turbulent times


Globally, businesses are still suffering from contagion. Nigeria’s fragile economy is even more affected and struggles to fully recover from the economic recession in which it is currently embroiled.

Many businesses have since collapsed due to the difficult business climate and the low purchasing power of Nigerians. Amid these challenges, more and more businesses need credit facilities to stay afloat, but have been deprived of the funds to do so due to the apparent apathy of banks to extend credit to businesses.
