Origin of the Bank
Amana Bank is the first fully Sharia compliant bank in Tanzania. Its beginning can be traced back to October 2009 when a group of prominent Tanzanian business personalities met and set in motion the establishment of an Islamic bank. Today, Amana Bank is wholly owned by a diverse base of Tanzanian businessmen who are committed to the success thereof.
Our Board of Directors is made up of prominent business people and professionals from different backgrounds who provide guidance to the Bank. The Bank has several Board Committees which gives support to the main Board. As the pioneer in Sharia compliant banking, the Sharia Supervisory Board approves all our products, services and processes. The Sharia Supervisory Board is made up of prominent Islamic scholars drawn from within and outside Tanzania.
Amana Bank (an equal opportunity employer) has a dedicated, experienced and professional team of employees who are well trained and ready to deliver the highest levels of service to its customers. The Bank offers products and services that meet the needs of not just the Muslims but everyone. Whether you are an individual or corporate, we can provide you with a full range of world-class financial solutions.
The meaning of Amana:
In the Kiswahili language, amana means trust. Our brand is a sign of security and prosperity, with Amana Bank, you are in safe hands. Our brand stands for security, fairness, ethical world-class financial solutions, economic empowerment to all stakeholders, partnership, social responsibility and superior performance.
One of the main motivating factors for establishing Amana Bank has been the need to provide an alternative to conventional banking, thus providing an ethical and fair mode of banking for all. Amana Bank is well aware of its responsibility of being the trailblazer in leading the growth of a stable and dynamic Islamic banking system leveraged on cutting-edge technology. The Bank intends to spread its wings throughout Tanzania and beyond over a period of time, thus providing customers easy accessibility and convenience through various delivery channels.
