The research was based on the topic “mobilizing Domestics savings for economic growth and development in the banking industry. (A case study of Union Bank of Nig PLC 1999 – 2000.

Two hypotheses were formulated, two research questions, The research design used is ex-post facto. The population of the study was all Union Bank in Enugu and a sample of one Union Bank was considered. The data was sourced from the annual report of Union bank. Regression analysis and correlation techniques were used to analyse the data. The analysis was carried out using statistical package for social sciences(SPSS).

One of the findings of these work is that Customer deposit has effect on the financial performance of Union Bank in Nigeria and that Interest rate charges has effect on the financial performance of Union Bank in Nigeria.



3.1Background to the Study

It has been acknowledged that the banking play a catalytic role in t he process of economic growth and development. This acknowledgement is reinforced by contemporary conceptualism to the effect that banks are a veritable vehicle for mobilizing resources from surplus units and tempting same to deficit unit. Banks constitute perhaps the most important segment of the financial market and played a dominate role in not mobilizing savings, but also allocating them for investment purposes.

 In Nigeria, domestic savings rate is relatively low compared to most other developing countries with the same for capital income level. In the past, investment rates were high and hence there was no problem for raising funds.

 In this present economic dispensation, the drive for savings deposit has been stepped up by banks and non- bank financial institutions. It is However not sufficient because the range and type of financial assets available are equally important. There is a wide range of saving instruments offered banks and non – bank financial institutions in Nigeria today.

 Most of the voluntary and non – contractual financial savings consist of savings and time deposit.

 Another area some banks are foreseeing to mobilize funds today is the montage saving: because large number of Nigerians need accommodation of their own but fund it difficult with their menage income. Interest payment a demand deposits accounts has also some positive impact on the propensity to save. Bank have also been allowed by the government to open domaliary account for Nigerian exporters in which proceed of experts can be paid or saved until when they are needed. Transaction costs related to operating a new accounts and making deposits and withdrawals are now be coming relatively easier particularly for small savers. There is also the pension scheme which seeks to induce depositors to invest small sums of money over a specified period of time in the hope of receiving a stream of benefits upon reacting the age of retirement.

 The crisis of confidence in our banks is a great set back for the banking system. In the past the majority of those who patronized the banks did so in order to find safer place for their money. But because of the lack of confidence in banks today sizeable amount of Nigerians keep their currency or cash at home.

 This winders the financial intermediaries function of intermediation. Most of our industries depend on commercial bank assistance in form of overdraft short term and long loans for effective operation.

Statement of the Problem

Income is the greatest constraint to savings mobilization. The low level of income among the people in Nigeria constitutes a limiting factor to savings mobilization. The inadequate banking facilities in the economy in general and the rural areas in particular also constitute an obstacle to wide savings mobilization.

In the Nigerian financial sector, according to EFIA Access to financial services in Nigeria 2016 survey, indicated that about 40.1 million Nigeria adults, representing 41.6% of the adult population are financially excluded. That is, they do not have access to Deposit Money Banks, Union Bank, Mobile Money, Insurance and Pensions. Therefore, banks have the sole responsibility to approach this group of persons and make them understand the importance and benefits of saving. Not with-standing the above importance of micro financing in Nigeria. To the best of my knowledge as a researcher, not much work has been done to find out the relationship between deposit mobilization and the financial performance of micro financing in Nigeria. This therefore informs the necessity to investigate this relationship as a contribution to knowledge and an attempt to fill the research gap; hence, the decision to embark on this study. Therefore, this study is carried out to determine, if really, the financial performance of Union Bank are affected by deposit Mobilization.
