1.1. Background of the study
The government of Ethiopia has launched economic reforms, financial liberalization measures and restructuring of financial institutions with the aim of promoting a competitive environment and efficient banking services to the public. The financial sector, with implementation of flexible interest and exchange rates that are market-lead, shows sign of improvement. In addition, the coming in to effect of the Licensing and Supervising Banking and Business Proclamation No. 84/1994 propels the mergence of many private banks in the market since 1994 (Kiyota et.al, 2007). This joined by rapid technological advancement and improved communication systems, has contributed to the increasing integration and resemblance amongst banks in the financial sector. As a result, banks are now faced with very high and intense competition amongst them (Harvey, 2010).
Hence, in order to win this intense competition and maintain their market share of the bank industry; they must give attention to the existing and potential customers need, want and preferences to maximize their satisfaction and loyalty plus to that they must make continues customer service quality improvement program. Since the importance of making continuous customer service quality improvement program is to make profit, build good images, lead the market, and retain customers which lead customer loyalty.
In this context, the subject of service quality in relation to customer satisfaction and loyalty
needs a fresh understanding in the current business scenario. Service quality is particularly
essential in the banking services context because it provides high level of customer
satisfaction and wins customer loyalty, for this reason it becomes
advantage (Ahmossawi, 2001).
Customer satisfaction is also crucial
the banking sector because of
the special nature
contact with customers who
needs and require
customized solutions and it is
known to be one of the most important
affects company market shares and customer loyalty (Clemes, 2008).
Similarly, service loyalty is one of the most important structures in service marketing, due to its final effect on customers’ repeated purchases, and in fact, those loyal customers who purchase repeatedly are considered as the base of any business (Mohsan, 2011). Although these concepts have been used so many times in the marketing literature, but the relations between these three concepts still remain ambiguous and this calls for investigation to find the relation of these three concepts.
