The Mission (purpose of being) of the Bank is:

ABT is a socially responsible bank for the lower and middle income strata of the Tanzanian society. It is the one-stop bank of choice for micro and small enterprises.

It strives to be the leading provider in Tanzania.

ABT builds-up long term business relationships with customers based on responsibility and mutual respect. By doing so it promotes a savings culture, provides payment and account services and supports borrowers to build-up a credit history. The bank’s loans are primarily based on an assessment of the borrower’s repayment capacity. Consumer loans are not a core product of the Bank.


The Vision (end goal) of the Bank is:

Commitment to the development of financial systems that support social progress by rendering services to all people with the same ambition for excellence and quality.
