Living up to our name

Tanmeyah was formed to fill a major gap in Egypt’s social and economic growth: despite our country’s young and vibrant population, the majority of Egyptians and almost 65% of Egyptian businesses are considered “un-bankable” by major financial institutions, in accordance with the Central Bank of Egypt’s regulations. These business owners are cut off from the funds they need to grow their businesses and create jobs, denying their communities the means of improving their standard of living.

An ongoing success story

Tanmeyah continues to expand its footprint, availing financing programs to a larger number of people with limited access to capital and establishing new branches in the centers of towns and communities across Egypt. We continue to broaden our service offerings, having invested in fintech to reach customers on their mobile devices, and establishing core banking services that not only help us reach our customers but also provide a platform for other financial institutions to reach populations that are traditionally overlooked. In 2022, and through 306 branches nationwide, Tanmeyah provided credit to over 400,000 borrowers at a total value of EGP6.2 billion.

Tanmeyah has lived up to its name, remarkably growing its services and geographic scope in its short history and proving itself resilient to political and economic turbulence along the way. But the real growth story is the success of the businesses and customers that have chosen to work with Tanmeyah.
