DCB Commercial Bank was formed following an outcry of Dares Salaam residents on the lack of capital as the major obstacle faced by micro entrepreneurs in their effort to improve their businesses. The bank was registered in 2001 as Dar es Salaam Community Bank Limited, the primary objective being carrying out micro finance banking dedicated to financing poverty alleviation programs. The Bank of Tanzania granted a banking license in 2002 to carry out banking business as a Regional Unit (community) Bank.
In 2013, the bank uplifted its license from Regional Unit Bank to a fully-fledged Commercial Bank. The bank has since then rebuilt its presence in the market by reviewing and aligning its branch network to a commercial set up, appropriately repositioning the existing branches and opening the Dodoma Branch in 2017. The entire five year transformation exercise has seen DCB Commercial Bank PLC moving into a very competitive and well established bank ready to serve its potential market niche in the medium and longterm basis.
