(, 2015)-The First International Bank (FIB) has inaugurated its local branch in Brewerville City, a suburb of the Liberian capital, Monrovia.

The Bank’s Senior Manager for Client Services and Business Development, Rhonda Richards-Vanballmoos, said the initiative is part of the bank’s decentralization drive.

Madam Vanballmoos said:” The Brewerville Branch will offer commercial banking, savings, and money transfer, among others. She spoke Friday, April 17, 2015 at the official launch of the Brewerville Branch of the First International Bank.

Madam Vanballmoos assured the residents of Brewerville of the bank’s commitment to providing better services that will bring great relief to them.

Performing the official launch of the facility, Foreign Minister, Augustine Ngafuan, said, “The resumption of commercial activities indicates that the Liberia is making great effort in the fight against Ebola. “

“Government has made progress in this regard to see country change from bad to good, as evidenced by the resumption of flights, including Kenya Airways,” Minister Ngafuan said.

The Foreign Minister said despite these efforts, there are still few countries that have imposed travel ban on Liberians because of Ebola.

In remarks, Brewerville Acting City Mayor, George V. Curtis, thanked the First International Bank family for the initiative and called on other commercial banks operating in the country to follow suit.

Mr. Curtis admonished residents of Brewerville and its surrounding communities, to take advantage of what he referred to as a “golden opportunity.”

The establishment of the bank in the Brewerville Community is the first ever commercial bank in the history of Liberia’s banking sector.

The First International Bank is among several commercial banks operating in the country, including ECOBANK, United Bank of Africa (UBA), GT Bank, among others.
