Debit cards in Pemba

I am moving to Moz to participate in a development project for 8 months. My main concern is that I can access funds from my bank account, rather than advancing cash using my credit card, which can get expensive. I have read the info contained in the Mozguide for Cabo Delgado, and it suggests that a Visa debit card is better than a Mastercard (Cirrus/Maestro - which is what I have). Is there <u>at least</u> one bank in Pemba that you can confirm will accept the cirrus or maestro card? I don't care if I need to confine my banking to one ATM in town, as long as I can access funds somewhere in Pemba or Wimbe, I'll keep the card I have.
Muito obrigado for any assistance you or anybody else can offer!

The Cirrus/Maestro system is not exclusive to Mastercard at all of the ATM's throughout Moz that I have used, including in Pemba, the ATM's in Pemba. So yes Mastercard will work but beware if intending to use American Express credit cards - not accepted anywhere in Moz. And note too that Travellers' Cheques are virtually useless anywhere in Moz.
