Yoma Bank was established in 1993 and grew to be the second largest commercial bank in the country. However, following a financial crisis in the country in 2003, the bank had its licences severely restricted and operated solely as a remittance transfer operator, unable to offer loans or deposits. The relevant licences were returned to the bank in late 2012, and it has re-established its banking services, primarily lending to SMEs across its 50-branch network.
