Odotobri rural bank has added yet another branch to its already nine branches making it ten now. The Ayigya branch of the bank was on Monday, November 7 commissioned.
The bank with its headquarters at Jacobu in the Amansie Central district of the Ashanti Region apart from the newly established Ayigya branch, has other branches at Obuasi, Bekwai, Asawasi, Old Tafo, Krofuom, Maakro, Agric Nzema, and Roman Hill all in the Ashanti region.
Professor Nana Mensah Bonsu, the Asekyerehene who was the guest of honor for the event was first to open an account with the branch with an amount of Ghc1, 000 after it was commissioned. He urged the bank to consider seeing to the plights of the community which according to him had got to do with security, education and others.
The board chairman on the other hand touched on the success chalked by the bank in its existence for the past 33 years. According to Bernard Asamoah Boateng, the bank had performed creditably well as compared to other banks hence, the ability to be opening branches in the region. He said Odotobri Rural Bank was an exception when it comes to the issue of bank charges having said customers with the bank were free from unnecessary bank charges which other banks do. He indicated the customers of the bank will from December this year have access to ATM machines at all branches.
ODOTOBRI RURAL BANK LTD. LAUNCHES GBU (GHANA BLIND UNION) LOANS & EXTENDS A GENEROUS HAND TO VARIOUS INSTITUTIONS INCLUDING NATIONAL ROAD SAFETY COMMISSION, GHANA POLICE SERVICE, SCHOOLS ETC. TO THE TUNE OF GH¢20,386.00
From time immemorial, our brothers and sisters who happen to be physically handicapped have been compelled to be dependent on other family members and sometimes strangers who are most often unwilling to offer assistance.
For this reason, Odotobri Rural Bank Limited did not relent in collaborating with the Ghana Blind Union (GBU) to grant loans to the blind. Odotobri counts it vital to shed light into the lives of these visually challenged brethren who are yet skillful, in order that they would earn a dignified living and also possibly take on the role of bread winners for their relatives, instead of becoming a burden for others. Mr. Paul Owusu, Madam Hagar Appiah and Madam Cecilia Arthur are some beneficiaries of the GBU loans.
The Board and Management of the Bank are therefore pleased to launch this special service rendered to the visually handicapped.
Odotobri Rural Bank at Jacobu in the Amansie Central in the Ashanti Region has offered scholarship totalling GH¢33,100 to 92 brilliant, needy students as part of the bank’s corporate social responsibility.
