Total assets of Tanzania’s banks reached TZS22.5tn in 2014, a growth of 15.11% from TZS19.5tn in 2013, while total liabilities grew by 14.81% from TZS17tn in 2013 to TZS19.5tn in 2014.
Total capital increased by 17.10% from TZS2.5tn in 2013 to almost TZS3tn in 2014. The growth was attributed to the entrance of new banking institutions, retention of profits and additional capital injection, the Banks of Tanzania (BOT) indicates.
Tanzania Banking Network
According to the latest banking report of BOT, the banking institutions in Tanzania had an overall branch network of 702 branches in 2014, compared to 642 in 2013.
Most of the branches were located in major cities of Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Mwanza, Mbeya, and Moshi.
Dar es Salaam had 255 branches which constituted 36.32% of all branches, followed by Arusha, 50 branches (7.12%), Mwanza, 46 (6.55%), Mbeya, 38 (5.41%) and Moshi, 32 (4.56%). In 2014, the overall number of banking agents grew by 180%, from 591 in 2013 to 1,652.
This is a result of the comprehensive agent banking guidelines introduced by BOT in 2013 that permit for the first time licensed banks and financial institutions to appoint retail agents for their banking services.
Accordingly, the introduction of agent banking provides a mechanism, through which banks can profitably extend their services to previously unbanked lower income individuals.
