Atwima Kwanwoma Bank opens Alabar branch

Atwima Kwanwoma Rural Bank has inaugurated its newest branch within the Alabar and Manhyia communities in Kumasi.
The opening of the branch, named the Alabar Branch, brings to seven (7) the total number of branches of the Bank since its establishment in 1983.
The Bank, which chalks 30 years operational success in September 6th this year, is said to be on course with its primary aim of bringing banking services to the unbanked in the rural, peri -urban and urban areas.
The efforts being made to realise the aims of the Bank are believed to have contributed immensely to its customer base, which is now stands at 139,398 individuals and corporate entities.
Mr. Patrick Owusu, Board Chairman of the Bank, stated that opening of the Alabar branch is a clear testimony of the Bank’s long-cherished dream of providing their enviable services to the central business area of Kumasi.
He noted that a good number of the Bank’s clients trade within Central Market, Adum, Manhyia, Roman Hill, and Alabar -- and Dr. Mensah and believes that getting closer to them will help to improve upon the relationship.
He therefore used the occasion to appeal to non-customers to be part of the Bank, and also invited customers to take advantage of their Wide Area Network (WAN) and gain quick access to their accounts.
According to him: “The bank, over the years, has not only excelled in doing banking but has also been a good corporate citizen -- by being alive to its social responsibilities within the areas where it operates.”
The vital role the Bank is playing in society has been recognised by many awarding institutions over the years. The most recent of these acknowledgments is a gold award conferred on the Bank at the 5th Ghana Business and Financial Services Excellence Awards organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Trade and Industry in recognition of its outstanding contribution to development of the country.
The Bank this year is very keen on customer satisfaction and hints at unveiling more tailor-made products and services to make banking operations more attractive.
