SMFB is the first State MFB in the North Eastern Region of Nigeria and the largest. We have reached more than 50,000 households through 13 outlets that cover 15 Local Government Areas of the State. Most of these people were financially included for the first time. Our outreach extends to nearly 300 villages , some of which are accessible only during a part of the year


We have successfully weathered the storms of insurgency and continue to operate sustainably in a fragile and volatile environment.
