61-year-old Fatema Abdulqader is the lucky winner of ila Bank’s ‘Al Kanz’ cash prize of US$50,000 for May 2023. The fast-growing digital mobile-only bank powered by Bank ABC, held the draw for this prize under the supervision of representatives from the Ministry of Industry & Commerce, Bank ABC, ila Bank and Ernst & Young.

Fatema, who makes the most of the ila app’s multi-currency feature when travelling, was notified of her lucky win soon after the official draw.

“When I was first informed of winning this prize, I felt surprised, happy, excited, and shocked all at the same time! I only fully believed that I have won this life-changing amount once the prize money was in my account,” she remarked.

Fatema plans to invest the prize money but will keep it in her Al Kanz account until she finds the right opportunity. When asked if she will continue to deposit money into her Al Kanz account in the future, the prudent investor's enthusiastic response was, “Definitely, and I hope to win the US$1 million prize in December!”
