June and July 2021  -  UmojaSwitch Company Limited

UmojaSwitch was established in the year 2006 by six banks with the main purpose being able to establish a joint shared infrastructure for financial services and enjoying the economies of scale. This was after the challenges which faced the small banks in establishing this kind of infrastructure individually. The founding members of UmojaSwitch Company Limited are:

  1. Akiba Commercial Bank Plc
  2. Azania Bank Limited
  3. Bank Of Africa Tanzania Limited
  4. TIB Development Bank (formerly Tanzania Investment Bank Limited)
  5. Twiga Bancorp Limited
  6. DCB Commercial Bank Plc (formerly Dar es Salaam Community Bank Limited)

Eventually, the number of members joining the UmojaSwitch network continued to increase. In the year 2010, the members passed a resolution to transform the consortium into a private company limited by shares. Thus, a new company was incorporated by 2011 by the name UmojaSwitch Company Limited.  After these establishments, the following are the other members who joined after the establishment of UmojaSwitch consortium:

  1. Access Bank Tanzania Limited
  2. Advans Bank Limited
  3. Amana Bank Limited
  4. China Commercial Bank
  5. Commercial Bank of Africa (Tanzania) Limited
  6. Efatha Bank Limited
  7. Kagera Farmers Cooperative Bank Limited
  8. Kilimanjaro Cooperative Bank Limited
  9. Maendeleo Bank Limited
  10. Mbinga Community Bank Limited
  11. Meru Community Bank
  12. Mkombozi Commercial Bank Limited
  13. Mufindi Community Bank Limited
  14. Mwanga Community Bank Limited
  15. Njombe Community Bank Limited
  16. NIC Bank Limited
  17. Peoples Bank of Zanzibar
  18. Tanzania Postal Bank
  19. Tanzania Women’s Bank Plc
  20. Uchumi Commercial Bank Limited
  21. United Bank Limited

The aim of establishment was to create a shared platform where financial institutions can integrate and interpolate through a shared switch. Not only that, but also to create a shared based brand that financial institutions will be recognized as a leader in provision of financial services which are convenient, reliable, secured, accessible and affordable to our customers


To become the largest provider of electronic payment services in the country by providing services which are reliable, affordable and accessible for the benefit and convenience of its members and their customers.

They have been a very loyal member since 2017. 

Message from ATMIA CEO 

Dear Valued ATMIA Member,

Thank you for your continued support throughout the pandemic disruption we’ve all experienced to some degree or another. The good news is that our industry is gearing up strongly for a reinvention, with Next Gen ATMs on track to be launched in Q4 and ATMIA’s new global ATM hygiene best practices and protocol recently published to enable deployers to provide an additional comfort level for hygiene-conscious ATM users in the “new normal”. 

I was proud of ATMIA for transitioning to virtual events until the pandemic is truly over, in order to continue providing excellent educational material by the industry, for the industry – check out our upcoming virtual events here, which you can enjoy from the comfort and safety of your own desk space, comfortably fitting each day’s sessions into your daily workload.

I’m equally proud of the ATM industry for fighting back against the challenge of this once-in-a-century public health emergency. Together, we can keep our industry growing while monitoring the threats we face through our work in the international ATM Security Association.

Let’s continue to protect the present while building the industry’s future. It’s safe in our hands.

Warmest regards,

Mike Lee
