Stanbic Bank Uganda has signed a partnership with the Ministry of Health to offer a range of low interest loans to health workers across the country.

The loans range from unsecured salary loans to secured loans, mortgages, vehicle and asset financing loans (VAF).

Speaking at the signing ceremony in Kampala on Monday, 18 October 2021, Ms Anne Juuko, Stanbic Bank Uganda Chief Executive Officer, said Ugandan health workers deserve assistance, especially in these times of the Covid-19.

“When I think about everyday heroes, I think about our health workers,” Juuko said.

“Health workers deserve the best. Every health worker deserves a home of their own. We at Stanbic Bank will walk with them in this journey and support their dreams,” he added.

In response, Dr Diana Atwine Kanzira, the Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Health, thanked Stanbic Bank for always identifying with MoH and supporting them on various fronts.

She said these affordable loans will make a lot of change in the lives of the health workers and their families.

“Many medics are just trained in medicine and saving lives. The free financial training from Stanbic Uganda will help medical workers achieve their financial dreams,” Dr Atwiine said.

Under the partnership, government health workers will be entitled to open an everyday banking account which attracts no monthly charges.
