To develop a conceptual and analytical understanding of the finances and their practical implications, it is necessary to integrate knowledge in the respective fields, learn and apply tools combined with working knowledge to have better impact of decisions when called upon to apply financial concepts. The study being the review of internship at First Women Bank Limited, Peshawar Cantt Branch, follows the objective to apply management knowledge in practice by working in real life situations to improve personal skills while dealing directly with people, developing analytical and report writing skills along with learning practically the commercial banking techniques. First Women Bank is a small bank started functioning in December 1989 with the purpose to enhance women development in financial sector. The Bank, however, has no deviated function except that it is administered and run by women bankers. The main branch of NWFP is operating quite successfully and effectively with limited staff and facilities. It has done well in meeting its objectives besides rendering services to its clients despite trapped into various administrative and operational constraints.



This internship report is an attempt to organize and write about all the knowledge that I have acquired during my internship at First Women Bank Limited, The Mall Branch Peshawar Cantt. It is based on my experience and

observations. My internship gave me an opportunity to work in real life situation with an aim of applying my management knowledge in practice and to improve my personal and analytical skills. The basic purpose of this study is to analyze the existing structure of the bank and preparing an analytical review with findings of the research and specific recommendations regarding the organization



During a short span of eight weeks, I tried my level best to study, analyze and evaluate the performance of the main departments of the bank like deposits, advances foreign exchange and remittances. Limitations Eight weeks were not enough to gather information about such a large organization. As FWBL us online, I didnt get experience of manual operations. They keep their records confidential due to which internees dont get information about each and every department. Delimitations The study will remain the part of literature review for the upcoming students of the institute, which in fact is the delimitation of the topic under review.



The organization where I worked used to keep all the documents, data or figures and records quite orderly and in sound security. Therefore it was not easy to know and collect the whole information that was required. However I tried my best to collect all possible information. While collecting the data and other relevant information, I have used both primary and secondary data.

Primary data is the data, which is collected for the first time. In this case, direct observation and informal interviews are used as a source of primary data. During my internship I use to observe the working procedure of the officers, their dealing with customers, following of the rules and procedures. I used to ask question from time to time to satisfy my queries. I also interviewed the manager of the bank to know about the history of the bank and the general overview of the organization.

Secondary data is the data that has already been collected. The main
source of information to this report is the secondary data. Annual Reports of the Bank for the year 2006 & 2007, various Manuals concerning the policies and procedures of the bank, Books on Banking and Management areas like Practice and Law of Banking in Pakistan & Management Skills and Applications, internship reports on FWBL by the previous student available at our library and the website of FWBL are part of secondary data.



The scheme of the study enjoys the following pattern; Introduction of the topic of the study assignment has been presented through its background review, purpose, scope, limitations and methodology combining as the first section. An overall picture of the organizational structure with the past review and recent changes, Human Resource Policies and Promotional Tools have been made the part of the report.

Because of proposed privatization, the further expansion of the bank is undecided, which has hampered its growth, particularly extending its services to the under developed and rural areas. Besides, mobile teams provide credit facilities in rural areas directly or through other Bank channels, where FWBL has no branches. At places, various Non Government Organization (NGOs) are also incorporated for such services for example Sarhad Rural Support Corporation (SRSC).


It is defined as A framework that defines the boundaries of the formal organization and within which the organization operates The Banks framework strictly follows the government policies of centralization with a flat organizational structure and the top to bottom authority relationship, since the day of its establishment. The top management took all the decisions ranging from small loans to large projects. Recently some changes have taken place at the top level, where the powers have been delegated. In order to ensure quick dispersal and efficient decision making it has decided to decentralize the discretionary powers. The whole setup of the organization has been divided into four sectors. Each sector headed by the Sector Executive is provided with the powers to deal with micro credits at their branch levels through Credit Committees consisting of four members. The decision taken by the sector Committees are subjected to rectification by the executive Committee headed by the President of the bank. The four sectors are; Sector Executive Sector Executive Sector executive Sector executive Sindh & Baluchistan N-W-F-P Punjab Federal Capital Area &Upper Punjab

The Deposits Section The deposits section is one of the most fundamental sections of any bank.

The main function of the clearing department is the interchange and settlement of credit claims. This is usually done through a clearing house. A clearing house is an association of commercial banks setup in a given locality, for the purpose of interchange and settlement of credit claims. The function of a clearinghouse is performed by the central bank of a country by tradition or by law. In Pakistan, the clearing system is operated by the State Bank of Pakistan. If SBP has no office at a place, then the NBP, as a representative of SBP, acts as a clearinghouse. The mechanism whereby cheques are exchanged in bulk and the cross obligations of banks are offset is explained in brief as follows. In practice the person receiving a cheque as payment deposits the cheque at the bank where he/she has an account. The cheque is deposited for collection purposes. The bank stamps the cheque which states that the payees account


will be credited on realization from the other bank i.e. the bank on which the cheque is drawn. Now the bank in which the cheque has been deposited becomes creditor of the drawer (other) bank. The debtor bank will pay the amount of cheque by transferring it from cash reserve, if there are no offsetting transactions. At the same time, the creditor bank receives large amounts of cheques drawn on it by other banks giving claims of payments by them. It will be most uneconomical and confusing if the bank had to transfer cash for meeting each liability. The easiest and safest way is to offset the reciprocal claims against one another and receive only the net amount owned. This facility is provided by the clearing house i.e. SBP. In Peshawar, the cheques of the clearing department are sent to the FWBL, Mall Branch for clearing at clearinghouse. The official of the clearing department make entry of Cheque coming form each branch in a register, which is called Transfer Delivery Register. Then they arrange the entire cheques bank wise. The representative of all commercial banks meets at a fixed time on all the business days of the week in the morning is SBP. The representative of FWBL hands over the cheques drawn on other banks to the representative of the bank and collects the cheques drawn on FWBL. A summary sheet is prepared which shows the amount and name of the Branch and bank on which the cheque was drawn; the total number of cheques delivered and received by them and the total amount is calculated. After this process the officials of clearing department separates cheques of each branch of FWBL. Which are then send to the respective branches via peon for clearing. Then three copies of Inter Office Advice Clearing are prepared. This show the net amount credited or debited. One copy is sent to HOK, one to the concerned branch and the other for office record. The branches of FWBL receive the cheques, DDs, RTC for clearing. They check all these and if some condition is unfulfilled, they are returned to Main Branch with the reason showing the causes of dishonor. The branches keep the


honored cheques. The peon collects the remaining cheques form branches and submits these to the Main Branch. The officials at the clearing department makes required changes in Transfer Delivery Register, if cheques are returned from branches. In the second session of the clearinghouse, representatives of the banks meet again. There the dishonored cheques are returned to the representatives of the banks. The net amounts owed or payable are settled by debiting/crediting the bank by the SBP official. The functions of the clearing department are very technical and require accuracy and quick response. Delay or negligence in the clearing department is very costly to the bank.

Training means acquiring skills or learning concepts to increase the performance of the employees.


Training of the work force is an important part of the Human Resource Department. The training aim of FWBL says; We want to continuously enhance professional competence of our employees by means of effective training and development. 6 The Bank is successfully conducting training programs at its Training Division in Karachi and Islamabad and through other external agencies like LUMS, NIPA, and IBP etc. Besides this, at branch level, the junior employees are provided with on-theJob Training, where they are put under the supervision of the senior employee, who is made responsible for their performance. The Bank has for the first time hired 21 Graduates Management Trainees offering market based salary package and extensive advance level 6 weeks training through IBP.



Every year the bank offers its employees to submit their option for voluntary retirement under the Voluntary Retirement Scheme. In such cases the rules applicable to the scheme are followed.



The Bank operates provident and un-funded pension scheme for the eligible employees. The employees only make contribution to the provident fund scheme.



In case of resignation by any Bank employee, the Branch Manager is required to carry out an Exit Interview, to find out the actual reason for the resignation.




Being a small bank, with limited resources FWBL has not been able enough to create a competitive edge for itself over other commercial banks through effective promotional activities. However, the Bank maintains its market position by providing excellent counter services to its customers, offered by all its branches. The main objective of the Bank is the financial assistance of the women for whom it has constantly launched various financing schemes as part of its promotional tools. Small loans in the form of Micro Credits and the recently launched schemes are also serving the purpose. Apart from financing small businesses of urban and rural women, it imparts Skill Development/Enhancement Training Programs in various lines of he businesses to attract more and more customers. It has helped in the development of 6,500 new entrepreneurs who are successfully running their businesses and thus adding to the GDP of the country.






To evaluate a firms financial condition and performance, the financial analyst needs to perform check ups on various aspects of a firms financial health. A tool frequently used during these check is financial ratio or index, which relates two pieces of financial data by dividing one quantity by the other for the ratio analysis of the bank the data for the year 2006 and 2007 has been used which is the last publish data available. A few financial ratios have been calculated which are as follows: 6.1.1 Profitability Ratios Net Profit Margin (Or-Net Return On Sales)

We apply the formula for net profit margin: Net profit margin Net profit margin 2006 = = = = = profit after taxation X 100 Markup 165910X100 722410 0.22% 157887X100 685346 0.23%

Net profit margin 2007

It shows the after taxation the profit margin per dollar of markup. Its shows as the FWBL increases its par dolor profit by 0.01%. This indicates FWBL has been succeeding to control its operational expresses during the year 2007.


G58 Gross Profit Margin

We apply the formula for gross profit margin. Gross profit margin = markup - cost

Gross profit margin 2006

722410-237905 722410

= Gross profit margin 2007 =

0.67= 67% 685346-171694 685346



The gross profit margin indicates the total margin available to cover operating expense. Thus its indicating FWBL increases its gross profit by 7.9% and its earning is more then its expenses. Return On Total Assets

We apply the formula for return on total assets: Return on assets = profit after Ration X Total assets Return on total assets 2006 = 165910X100 8989402 = Return on total assets = 1.85% 157887X100 8985576 = 1.75%

The return on asset of bank has been dropped from .1.85% in 2006 to 1.75% in 2007. This show management fails to utilize the assets of the bank efficiently.


Return On Stockholders Equity (Return On Net Worth)

We apply the formula: for return on net worth: Return on equity = profit after taxation X 100 Shareholder equity Return on equity2006 = 165910 X 100 868479 = Return on equity 2007 = 19.10% 157887X 100 1028116 = 15.35%

The return on equity of bank had declined to 15.35% in 2007 as compare to 19.10% in 2006, due to lower profit after taxation of the bank in 2007. 6.1.2 Liquidity Ratio Current Ratio

We apply the formula for current ratio: Current ratio = Current Assets Current liabilities Current ratio 2006 = 243887 7958955 = Current ratio 2007 = 0.306 2439449 7794923 = 0.313

Current ratio of bank has been increased to 0.306 in 2006 as compare to 0.313 in 2007. This means that the bank has more current assets reserve then its current liabilities.


Cash Ratio

We apply the formula for cash ratio: Cash ratio = cash Current liabilities Cash ratio 2006 = 7646937 83868821 = Cash ratio 2007 = 0.091 8601193 101314945 = 0.085

The current ratio of the bank has been reduces to 0.085 in 2007 from 0.091 in 2006. This means that the bank has now less cash on hand to retire the current liabilities. 6.1.3 Leverage Ratio Debt-To-Assets Ratio

We apply the formula for debt-to-asset-ratio: Debt-to-asset ratio = Total debt Total assets Debt-to-assets ratio 2006 = 8054770 8989402 = Debt-to-asset ratio 2007 = 0.896 7897332 8985576 = 0.878

The debt-to-asset ratio of the bank has been increased to .878 in 2007 from 0.896 in 2006. This means that the bank borrowed fund more the in pervious year. This debt includes both long term and short term debt.


Debt-To-Equity Ratio

We apply the formula for debt-to-equity ratio: Debt-to-equity ratio = Total Debt Stock holder equity Debt-to -equity ratio 2006 = 8054770 868479 = Debt-to-equity ratio 2007 = 9.27 7897332 1028116 = 7.68

The debt equity ratio of bank has decreased to 7.683 in 2007. As compare to 9.27 in 2006. This means that liabilities of bank have decreased in 2007 as compared to the bank's liabilities in 2006. Long-Term Debt-To-Equity Ratio

We apply the formula for long-term debt-to-equity ratio: Long term debt-to-equity ratio = long term debt Total stockholder equity

Long term debt-to-equity ratio 2006 =

3066249 868479 = 3.53

Long term debt-to-equity ratio 2007 =

3063507 1028116 = 2.97

The long term debt-to-equity ratio of the bank has decreased to 2.97 in 2007 as compare to 30583 in 2006. This mean that bank have 0.56 less then pervious year which show weak capital structure.


Times Interest Earned (or Coverage ) Ratio We apply the formula of times interest earned ratio: Times interest earned ratio = profit before interest & taxation Total interest charges Times interest earned ratio 2006 = = Times interest earned ratio 2007 = = 540796 284312 1.90 578072 339650 1.70

The time interest earned ratio of the bank has decreased to 1.70 in 2006 as compare to 1.70 in 2007. This mean that bank have 0.2 earnings which can decline without the firm becoming unable to meet its annual interest cost.

SWOT is an acronym for an organizations Strengths, weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. A SWOT analysis consists of sizing up a firms internal strengths & weaknesses & its external opportunities & threats. It is a tool to get a quick overview of firms strategic situation. In the following lines is the SWOT analysis of FWBL.


It has more branches and therefore accessible to more potential customers. It has the ability to cope with pressure of competition and has several times come out of competition successfully. It has modern technology and resources to cater to its customers. Staff is young and rich in experience and working skills. It has the good will of people and it is an asset to it. It provides services to Pakistanis outside the country. Unique character and existence. It offers attractive schemes from time to time.


3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

1. 2. 3.

Marketing skills of the bank need improvement. Lack of consistency among branches. Banks internal environment does not match with its Smart image.


4. 5. 6.

Poor communication among different level of management. Rules and regulation are not strictly followed. Employees lack motivation.

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Bank should take interest and explore new market segments. Expend branches providing an easy access to customers. Increase its product line by providing new services. New schemes should be introduce for overseas Pakistanis. Reduce risk by increasing credit facilities to lower income groups. New technological advancement like: Tele bank and internet banking facilities should be started in order to serve the customers more efficiently.


Customers feed back on different products and accounts can really improve the bank performance and encouraged the atmosphere for other future policies.

1. 2. 3.

Increasing number of foreign banks in the country. Privatization of other domestic banks. Highly specialized and attractive services provided by foreign banks to their customers. Inconsistency in governments policies regarding to business and economic sector. Growing global technological advancement. Strict regulations by the government over credit facilities to the customers as well as to meet the prudential regulations.


5. 6.



Loss of confidence of overseas prospects/customers due to freezing of accounts.

From SWOT analysis I have concluded that the management of the bank should adopt systematic planning for the bank growth, communicate with all management levels of the bank, discover new segments of the customers by offering new schemes, introduce new technological advances in their operations. Also the bank should give more attention to its existing customer by catering their needs and informing them about ongoing activities and services.






8.1.1. Centralization FWBL has a centralize structure. There is no delegation of authority to the lower management. In order to improve the performance of the staff and to build confidence, some authority must be delegated to the lower management. 8.1.2. Improper distribution of resources In FWBL there is an improper distribution of duties and responsibilities among the officers. Officers of the same grade are often performing more duties and have more responsibly as compare to other officer. 8.1.3. Product Rates Products rate are not high enough to attract the customers to have a better market share. 8.1.4. Negligence of Rules and Regulations Rules and regulations are not properly communicated to the employees therefore they usually neglect the rules and regulations. 8.1.5. Poor job rotation The rotation of jobs among officers is not done properly. Officers of the one department are often unaware of the working of the other departments so their must be a proper job rotation among the officers so that employees have know how of the whole system.


8.1.6. Promotional Policy The promotional policy of FWBL is very slow there are very few opportunities for upward advancement. 8.1.7. Branch Setup There are some deficiencies in branch setup, which creates disturbance and effect the efficiency of the employees. 8.1.8. Separation of Activities There is no separation of activities. Often a task is not performed by a single department instead it is done partially in one department and partially in the other .which results in conflicts among the officers. 8.1.9. Specialized Training The training provided to officers is based on generalization rather than specialization. Therefore after the completion of training the officer inducted into a specific field faces difficulty 8.1.10. Markup Charges The bank charges a high markup rate on short-term loans as compare to the other banks. 8.1.11. Marketing at Desk The bank officers are doing very little on their own to explore the possibilities of selling banking services to the people with whom the bank has no account or regular business relationship. 8.1.12. Training Program The training program of bank is not adequate. Both specialized and generalized training should be provided to fresh as well as on-job workers to maintain high standards of services. The training program of bank should include scientific techniques to improve the decision-making and inter personnel as well as individual needs of the employees.


8.1.13. Public Communication There is no proper way of giving the information that customer need which has a negative effect on the efficiency of the services. 8.1.14. Use of Media The bank does not pay much attention to marketing. In order to increase market share the bank should properly advertise it self and introduce its services in detail through media. 8.1.15. Age of Retirement The age of superannuation is fixed at 60 years. A variable retirement age policy should be introduced. This will force the bank management to do more effective job of appraising the employees performance.



In the end I would like to end my report with some recommendations. These recommendations are based on my analysis. I hope that if the bank follows these recommendations, it will have a positive effect on the performance and profitability of the bank. 8.2.1. Improvement in customer services Constant improvement in customer services are needed in todays competitive environment. Personalized banking should be introduced to attract more customers. 8.2.2. Computerized telephone banking system The bank should introduce this product of modern banking, which guarantees to provide its clients the satisfaction with convenient, secure, time saving way of banking. The customer can always remain in touch by just a telephone call. This latest computer service will truly bring banking to homes and Offices and it can ensure the security of account by providing with a user ID with the help of which one can get the facilities of account balance, transaction history and currency rates etc by just a phone call.


8.2.3. Better feed back System There is a great need of improving an upward communication in the different management levels of the bank. For this purpose a better feed back system should be design. 8.2.4. Introduction of Management by Objectives (MBO) The concept of management by objectives should be introduced in the bank where the subordinates should be expected to formulate objectives for themselves. This will ensure the setting up of the objectives according to the capabilities of the individuals. In addition to this, it will also help in achieving the goals because they are involved in the process of goal setting. 8.2.5. Job rotation The employees of FWBL are specialist in their field but they need straightening in general banking. They are generally confine to their own work and do not give sufficient consideration to other departments. In order to have some basic information about other department, there must be proper job rotation. 8.2.6. Evaluating the job A detail and systematic study of the job should be done to know the nature and characteristics of the people to be employed. This will help in identifying the training needs and in appraising the performance of the employees. 8.2.7. Special Marketing Training In this competitive era, the bank should give special marketing training to employees for motivating customers. The training program of bank should include scientific techniques to improve the decision-making and inter personnel as well as individual needs of the employees.


8.2.8. Decentralization In order to increase efficiency and motivation of the employees, the bank must delegate some authority to lower grade staff. This will increase their confidence and they will consider them selves important and responsible. 8.2.9. Introducing Carrier Planning As a matter of personnel policy, personnel department should prepare a career plan showing their future growth potential, depending on the job performance and evaluation, which should be made known to the employees. Employees should be given opportunities to show performance. 8.2.10. Working Conditions The working area is comparatively smaller as compared to the needs of the branch. As a result there is lesser working space provided to employees. The congested place affects their efficiency at work. In order to have an efficient and effective out-put, better working condition should be provided. 8.2.11. Promotion and Publicity Like all the other successful banks the bank should enhance its business in the best way. It should adopt strong strategies for promotion and publicity of its services that they offer. 8.2.12. Product Innovation During this time of competition, the bank must come up with innovative products better than its competitors for their customers. 8.2.13. Expansion The bank should increase the number of its branches .they should not only expand their network nation wide but also out side the country. 8.2.14. Accommodation There should be proper seating arrangement for the customers as well as staff.


8.2.15. Proper Distribution of Work There is no proper distribution of work among employees. Some employees have more work to do which increase stress and load. The work should be distributed in such a manner so that there should be no undue burden on any one. 8.2.16. Latest Technology In order to save time latest software should be used in the bank. This will enhance the data processing speed of the computers. 8.2.17. Use of Motivation In order to motivate employees, individual must have a job with responsibility, advancement and growth. Such motivators should be used for efficient working. 8.2.18. Use of Media The bank can increase its market share by effective use of media and publications. it can introduce its services in detail and in a more easy manner through media. 8.2.19. More Friendly Environment Establishment of a friendly environment is very important because it will help to gain the interest of the employees in work. More space should be provided. There should be separate section for separate task. 8.2.20. Cost and Benefit Analysis Proper survey and research should be conducted before the introduction of any new schemes i.e. cost and benefit analysis should be viewed. 8.2.21. Revision of Policies The existing policies should be reviewed and there should be permanent revision of the policies from time to time
