Housing Finance Bank Launches Remote Account Opening App
Housing Finance Bank Uganda has launched its account opening service available on its Mobile Banking App, in a campaign dubbed “Bwepwa” which is luganda slang that means ‘just like that’ or ‘as simple as that’.
The Mobile Banking App is a self-service platform that enables customers to send and receive money, track bank account activity, pay bills, load airtime and now, open a Housing Finance Bank account instantly without visiting the branch.
“We are ever improving our customers’ banking experience. Today, we take another stride on this journey through the launch of our new account opening service”, said Michael K. Mugabi, Managing Director at Housing Finance Bank, while addressing journalists in Kampala on Wednesday.
He said Customers can now open an account with the bank wherever they are, whenever they want by simply downloading the Mobile Banking App.
On her part, Peace K. Ayebazibwe, the Executive Director at Housing Finance Bank, said Customers who open their account through the Mobile Banking App can opt to get a MasterCard to enable them to make payments at a point of sale, as well as withdraw money from the ATM or agent locations.
“This offers the customer a faster, more convenient way to start banking with Housing Finance Bank, hence the name “Bwepwa”, a slang used by Kampala upcoming musicians to mean; “on the spot or immediately”.
The app can be downloaded from the app store on any smartphone and is available for both new and existing customers.
