On Wednesday 8th of August 2015, FMB conducted the 3rd draw in the Kukatamuka promotion it is running in partnership with Agora and Farmers World targeted towards tobacco farmers. The promotion was launched in March to run from 1st April to 31st August; individual farmers and tobacco farmers’ clubs with an FMB Makwacha account can enter the promotion just by routing their tobacco proceeds through their account, without being required to keep a certain balance in the account.

When contacted for his comments after his club’s name was drawn as the winner of a bailing press, the signatory for Chamoyo Club from Mzuzu could not hold his excitement on their win; he applauded FMB for considering its customers especially tobacco farmers by having this promotion.
The promotion runs till the end of August, when the grand draws of the top prizes of K1, 000,000 and the Grand Prize of a brand new Toyota Hilux Single Cab 4X4 will be conducted.
