Banking services have been restored in the northern Mozambican town of Mueda in the restive Cabo Delgado province.
The services had been discontinued due to insecurity in the region and a lack of electricity supply.
Civil servants living in the area used to travel to Montepuez, 220km (135miles) away, to access their salaries, according to local media.
Two banks, Banco Comercial e de Investimentos and Millennim bim, have reopened their branches in the town. Absa bank is however yet to reopen.
Restriction to banking services were issued after an attack in the region's main town of Palma on 24 March.
Electricity supply has also resumed a year after the sabotage of the Ouasse substation, in the district of Mocímboa da Praia.
Like other towns in Cabo Delgado province, Mueda had been in darkness since August last year after substations were vandalised.
Mueda Mayor Manuel Pitalavalave has asked entrepreneurs who had left the area to return.
