FCMB Launches “FCMB Airtime Advance”

This is good news for First City Monument Bank (FCMB) customers as the bank has now introduced a unique product, the FCMB Airtime Advance, to enable customers to borrow between N200 and N5,000 directly from their bank accounts to purchase airtime, regardless of their financial standing.

Speaking on the initiative, the bank in a statement said; “The airtime Advance solution aims to provide immediate relief to customers, “who may be in urgent need of airtime to make phone calls, send text messages, or engage in other essential communication activities.”

“With FCMB Airtime Advance, customers will no longer need to agonize over how to top up airtime on their phone lines.”

“FCMB Airtime Advance is an innovative proprietary product of the bank.”

“The product will eliminate the discomfort of getting disconnected in the middle of telephone calls due to insufficient airtime by bridging the funding gap.”

“Customers with or without existing FastCash loans can access the Airtime Advance based on eligibility by dialing FCMB’s USSD code of *329# or via the loan string *329*11#. The loan has flexible repayment cycles, and the repayment is taken from funds in the customer’s account.”

However, speaking at the product launch in Lagos, Mrs. Yemisi Edun, Managing Director, FCMB, said; “We are excited to take the lead as the first in the Nigerian banking industry to introduce an Airtime Advance product. We want to support as many people as we can. It gives a lot of joy to realize that we are helping individuals, households, and businesses across the nation meet critical needs.”

“Nigerians should take advantage of the FCMB Airtime Advance. We are committed to delivering value-added digital banking solutions and superior customer experience.”

Also, FCMB’s Divisional Head, of Personal Banking, Mr. Shamsideen Fashola, said; “The Airtime Advance is a product of necessity. The inability to purchase airtime, which limits communication or getting disconnected during a call due to insufficient airtime, can be embarrassing.”

“Our Airtime Advance solution will eliminate this, enabling more Nigerians to connect by having access to money to top-up their lines.”
