MBSB Bank Berhad’s (MBSB Bank) recent launch of its Kota Baru branch in Jalan Sultan Yahya Petra marks its ongoing commitment to serve the community through banking products and various corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes.
The bank said that the latest branch in its line-up also functions as a focal point for MBSB Bank's existence among the local community in Kota Baru.
According to MBSB Bank’s chief strategy officer, Datuk Azlan Shahrim, the opening of the branch in Kota Baru is vital to serve customers who choose to manage their finances in person.
“Despite the rise of digital banking, there are still customers who choose to manage their finances through face-to-face interaction, especially transactions that require detailed advisory services.
"With the opening of this branch, customers can learn more about PrimeWin Savings Account-i and PrimeWin Current Account-i that give customers the opportunity to win exciting prizes, including cash, luxury cars and vacation packages, among others, through the ongoing campaign ‘Simpan Berganda Menang Bergaya 2.0’ from now until May 31,” he said.
Meanwhile, MBSB Bank has amped up its corporate social responsibility efforts with the distribution of basic food donations through the 'Box of Care' programme to some 300 Kota Baru People’s Housing Project (PPR) residents in December last year.
He added that a month later, in January this year, MBSB aided 150 flood victims in the districts of Kota Baru namely Pasir Puteh and Pasir Mas, also through its ‘Box of Care’ programme.
For banking, MBSB Bank offers customers the opportunity to apply in the bank’s Personal Financing-i scheme with a financing amount of up to RM400,000 and a financing period of up to 10 years.
Besides that, the Term Deposit-i product offers a competitive rate of up to 4.30% per annum.
Notably, the bank also offers capital expenditure financing, operating expenses and working capital geared towards small- and medium-enterprise (SME) entrepreneurs.
That said, through MBSB Bank, SME entrepreneurs can apply for the Pemulih Government Guarantee Scheme (PGGS) offered by the Syarikat Jaminan Pembiayaan Perniagaan Berhad (SJPP), which provides new financing, ready financing facilities and extension of the financing period, as well as additional working capital to revitalise the business.
