The United Bank for Africa (UBA) has recently commissioned its new Cash Center in Suakoko, Gbarnga, Bong County.
The new Cash Center, which is located on the main campus of the Cuttington University, is part of the bank’s expansion program to cover almost all the counties while coming closer to customers who have contributed to UBA’s success over the years.
The new facility offers convenience to customers of UBA in that county and its surrounding towns, with a full bouquet of products of the bank.
The event coincided with the launch of Cuttington University’s Visa Prepaid ID Card and brought together students, faculty, and staff of the University as well as UBA’s staff.
Giving details of how the system will be helpful to students of the University, UBA’s Head of Digital Banking Prince Chesson bragged about the uniqueness of UBA’s Visa Card services being introduced to students of Cuttington University.
Mr. Chesson said: “This system we are about to launch today will help you in all your financial transactions, including the payment of your school fees wherever you are; even if you graduated today from this University, this Visa Card you are about to get today will always help you in all your monetary transactions.”
Commenting further, Chesson said the office will provide customers with advanced 24hr ATM service and make it possible for them to open an account, withdraw money, as well as deposit cash and checks. Other services include Africash, MoneyGram, Western Union, Nobel, among others.
He said the Co-Branded Visa Prepaid ID Card will ease the constraints students experience during their registration process, by enabling students to pay their school fees from UBA’s point of sale terminals, online, and also provide access to their financial record, among several other great features.
The CO- Branded Visa Pre-paid ID Card’s platform is a state-of-the-art payment and collection system that is expected to bring efficiency to the financial systems of universities in Liberia and serves as both ID and bank Card, he noted.
Last month, UBA launched the same service for the graduate school of the African Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU).
Speaking on behalf of the MD/CEO of UBA-Liberia, Melody Mezay-Ketter, who heads the bank’s Marketing & Corporate Communications Department, said the bank is pleased to implement innovative business ideas that won’t just bring income to the bank, but also make a difference in the financial sector of the country.
She called on residents of Bong County to take advantage of the new cash office on the Cuttington Campus to carry on all their banking transactions.
Ms. Precious Marshall, Associate Vice President for Internal Audits and Management Control at Cuttington University, expressed gratitude to UBA for the initiative.
“To see a card that can do everything means that we are on top of technology, and we are getting there.
For that, I say thank you again UBA,” she said.
