Overtime, many of Centenary Bank customers have expressed how much they would need to work out their banking using a Visa enabled card. This was so because the inaugural ATM card did not support the service, and could only operate where interswitch services are accepted.
In a bid to enhance customer convenience in accessing financial services, the institution has unveiled the new Cente Visa debit card. This card is globally accepted and it operates using Chip and Pin technology, which provides enhanced security.
Customers can now enjoy the freedom of transacting anywhere in the world, wherever Visa has been enabled.
Speaking during the launch, the bank’s Managing Director, Mr. Fabian Kasi, applauded the customers for their loyalty and urged them to get their Visa cards as soon possible.
“Our electronic Banking Story started in 2003 when we acquired the first ATM and we’ve been growing since then. Currently we have 176 ATMs, 64 Point of Sale Machines, Phone Banking through Cente Mobile and Internet Banking” he said.
The Country Director of VISA, Mr. Victor Ndlovu expressed delight at officially welcoming the customers of Centenary Bank onto the Visa network where they can enjoy secure and convenient payment experiences.
“This development is in line with our commitment to reduce cash usage and deepen financial inclusion across the region.”
