About Us


Bloom Bank Africa Gambia Limited is a financial institution that has been at the forefront of change since its inception. Our roots trace back over a decade when we started our banking legacy as Global Bank Gambia, serving the esteemed people of Gambia with unwavering dedication.

In 2023, a transformative chapter unfolded as Bloom Bank Africa Gambia Limited emerged, marking a significant milestone in our evolution.

This momentous change came about through the acquisition by the Oakwood Green Group, propelling us to new heights of success and amplifying our commitment to delivering exceptional banking services.

At Bloom Bank Africa Gambia Limited, we understand the importance of embracing change and adapting to the evolving needs of our customers. With a rich history behind us, we carry the knowledge and experience gained from our earlier days as Global Bank Gambia, infusing it into our present and future endeavors.
