This survey focused on gauging the level of customer satisfaction in the Zimbabwe Banking Sector. Like all commercial entities, banks rely on customers for survival. In the competitive banking industry, banks need to differentiate themselves from other banks by providing high-quality customer service.

Our objective, however, is that this report may be used constructively towards creating a competitive financial services sector that satisfies its customers.
