Celebrating women’s day – 8th March

8th March marked International Women’s Day. The theme this year was #ChooseToChallenge. A challenged world is an alert world.

We celebrate and appreciate our ladies!!

Valentines gift

Love knows no (social) distance – 14th February

In this day of social distance, love knows no boundaries. We went the extra mile on Valentines Day by helping customers in the Diaspora to spread love to their family and friends. It’s been a tough time and most of them did not get to see their loved ones due to travel restrictions. ABC Bank bridged the gap by buying Valentines gifts on behalf of our customers and delivering them to their loved ones.

They were all really overjoyed and touched with the heartfelt gesture of love. At ABC Bank, we strive to serve our customers and help them achieve the extraordinary through the small gestures of delivering valentines gifts to meeting our customers’ financial needs.
