London, 21 April 2021:

In a sign of the improvement in Libya’s cash crisis, more and more banks are raising their daily and weekly cash withdrawal limits for customers.

State-owned Jumhouria Bank, Libya’s largest bank, announced yesterday that it had raised its ATM withdrawal limits to LD 400 per day, 1,200 dinars per week, and 2,000 per month.

Sahara Bank, however, announced that unlimited cash will be available in all its branches.

The increased availability of cash comes on the back of efforts made by the Central Bank of Libya (CBL) to improve cash availability. On 18 April, the CBL granted banks a LD 5 billion loan to help ease the bank clearance process and the country’s bank liquidity crisis.
