Salaam African Bank is one of the leading providers of financial products and services in the East African region that are fully adherent to best business ethics. Launched in 2007, Salaam African Bank strives to be the pioneer of business ethics compliant services through the use of state-of-the-art technology and up-to-date financial services. For over a decade, the Diasporas and the local entrepreneurs in Djibouti have been actively looking to establish reliable connections with financial institutions throughout the region.

Ground-breaking in its approach, Salaam African Bank delivers world class financial services founded on three major principles. First, they do all the banking operations and services in line with the best business ethics. Second, they pool the savings of households and corporations to finance viable business ethics-compliant projects. Third, they are able to mobilize the ideas and wealth of Diasporas and local entrepreneurs in the region in order to take part in the reconstruction and development of the country.

Although banking in Djibouti dates back to the early 1900’s, the country never had a local bank to call its own. Salaam African Bank takes pride in being the first private bank to ever have its headquarters in the Republic of Djibouti. This is an important milestone for Djibouti because the bank is well equipped to serve their clients and proactively respond to their needs like never before.
