(AdIB) carries double meaning:new ideas/innovations and the first word of the capital city of Ethiopia where the Bank is born to shoulder its historic mission. The new vision and innovative ideas/approaches that were initially brewed in Addis will however be shared to potential customers all over the country through branches that will eventually be opened in the near future.
AdIB is established by diversified groups of shareholders, Cooperatives, Micro Finance Institutions (MFIs), Iddirs, other business organizations and individual citizens. The major shareholders of the Bank are Cooperatives and their members.

It has the plan to penetrate the huge market that host low and middle income people through Cooperatives and Micro Finance Institutions. AdIB will expand its operating by opening new branches at market centers within and outside Addis.
