Centenary Bank, the largest commercial microfinance bank in Uganda has been honored with two esteemed accolades at the prestigious Brand Africa Awards. The bank was recognized as the “Most Admired Ugandan Financial Service” and the “Most Admired Brand for Doing Good for Society, People, and Environment.” This was during an awards ceremony held at Golden Tulip in Kampala.
The Brand Africa 100 Awards seek to recognize and celebrate the top 100 brands throughout Africa. Brand Africa organized the awards ceremony to honor Uganda’s greatest brands. The success of many brands in their individual areas was examined in-depth market research that was carried out across the continent as the foundation for these awards.
Beatrice Lugalambi, the bank’s General Manager Corporate Communications and Marketing appreciated Brand Africa for their dedication in recognizing financial institutions and African Businesses.
“’We are honored to receive these prestigious awards from Brand Africa. They reflect Centenary Bank’s commitment to providing accessible and convenient financial services to our customers in a sustainable manner. We strive to continuously enhance the customer’s banking experience and meet their evolving needs.”
Centenary Bank has been actively involved in various initiatives aimed at promoting environmental sustainability and giving back to society. At the beginning of this year, the bank embarked on a green journey, resulting in the planting of over 3,022 trees across major cities in the country. Additionally, the bank has partnered with Rotary in the fight against cancer in Uganda through the Rotary Cancer Run for the past 11 years. Lugalambi expressed delight that these efforts were being acknowledged and recognized.
She further emphasized, “Our commitment to environmental conservation and our longstanding partnership with Rotary to combat cancer in Uganda are integral parts of our corporate social responsibility initiatives.”
As Centenary Bank continues to celebrate its 40 years of existence and transformational impact on people’s lives, Lugalambi made a resolute pledge that the bank would remain the leading provider of comprehensive financial services.
The two accolades bestowed upon Centenary Bank at the Brand Africa Awards serve as a testament to the bank’s dedication to excellence, community engagement, and environmental stewardship.
