Commercial Banks asked to open branches in Kiruhura
Commercial banks in Uganda have been called upon to open branches in Kiruhura district, which is said have one of the highest agricultural incomes in the country.
The district, which is Uganda’s leading producer of dairy products, remains without as single commercial bank branch.
According to Moses Byaruhanga, the proprietor of Premier Diaries Company, which produces the Mega Milk brand, dairy farmers in Kiruhura remain unbanked and vastly burdened with cash transactions.
Byaruhanga while addressing the managers of Bank of Africa at a customer appreciation event in Kampala today says efforts to convince banks open up branches in Kiruhura have remained fruitless.
