The National Bank of Commerce (NBC) launched a two-and-half-month campaign for their Islamic Banking customers to win two fully paid packages for two people to perform Hajj in October 2013.

Speaking during the promotion launch at NBC Head Office, NBC’s Head of Islamic Banking, Yassir Masoud said, “We are very excited to be launching the second round of this campaign. The Hajj promotion was launched for the first time in Tanzania last year and the results have been excellent. We managed to send two of our Islamic Banking customers and their selected partners to Hajj and received very positive feedback from them”.

Commenting on behalf of the Managing Director, NBC’s Head of Treasury Pius Tibazarwa said,

“We highly value our customers and the relationship we have with them and this promotion is another way of expressing our appreciation to our Islamic Banking customers for supporting us.” He added “This is the second time that our bank is running such a promotion and in the future we are expecting to send even more customers for this spiritual journey.”

NBC started offering Islamic Banking services in May 2010. Currently the services offered are Islamic Savings, Islamic Current, Islamic Business and Islamic Corporate accounts. These products are interest free, in compliance with Shari’ah laws, and are open to any customers who are interested regardless of their faith.

The promotion will culminate in a grand draw to select the winners, on 13 September 2013. Inclusive in the package are flight tickets, accommodation and spending money during their time in Mecca.
