People’s Bank affirms commitment

To support development and nurturing of children, People’s Bank has awarded higher interest rates together with a host of benefits and gifts with educational value.
This year, in line with Government’s vision to promote local manufacturing, the Bank expects to provide clay saving tills as one of the gift items, thereby supporting the clay industry in the country.
Commenting on the children’s savings initiatives People’s Bank Deputy General Manager (Process Management & Quality Assurance and Retail Banking) Renuka Jayasinghe stated, “People’s Bank has always been dedicated towards children. From 1 October till 31 December, in conjunction with the World Children’s Day, we will steer a special savings programme, a children’s savings trimester. Our intention is to encourage and create awareness amongst children, parents, guardians and the whole society with regard to the importance of savings. Encouraging future generations to save and through that, to promote a sustainable economic environment remains our key goal. People’s Bank has always been dedicated to this cause.”
People’s Bank will be organising special programmes and competitions during these three months focusing on enhancing the children’s knowledge levels and nurturing their creative talents. All such programmes will be carried out in strict adherence to the health guidelines given by the authorities in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
