As the government enforces measures to contain the spread of Corona Virus in Pakistan, Khushhali Microfinance Bank Limited (KMBL) is playing its part to contribute to these efforts and taking steps to ensure the safety of its customers and employees amid the pandemic.
In light of that, Khushhali Microfinance Bank has contributed PKR 1 million to the Prime Minister’s COVID-19 Pandemic Relief Fund, to support the government in the fight against COVID-19.
In an effort to curb the spread of the novel Corona Virus, Khushhali Microfinance Bank has been playing an active role on multiple fronts. This includes running COVID awareness campaigns, disinfecting branches on a regular basis, and ensuring availability of hand sanitizers and temperature gauges at its operational branches. Khushhali Microfinance Bank made sure to implement all SBP guidelines at its branches and offices. To ensure employee safety, Khushhali Microfinance Bank reduced work timings, closed cafeterias and has been regularly dispatching emails with safety guidelines. In line with social distancing protocols, Khushhali Microfinance Bank has enabled online transactions for clients by recently introducing mobile banking so customers can conduct their financial activities from their homes.
With 113,702 confirmed cases and more than 2000 COVID related deaths across the country, the need of the hour is to provide hospital beds to the patients, PPE to the doctors and other medical equipment to the frontline workers. As an institution dedicated to giving the best to humanity, Khushhali Microfinance Bank wants to contribute towards these efforts through monetary help amid the escalating health crisis.
President & CEO KMBL, Ghalib Nishtar said, “Khushhali Microfinance Bank has been dedicated to lifting vulnerable populations out of poverty in normal times. With the nation fighting against the corona virus, our contribution towards the PM’s COVID fund sits with our mission of helping those in need in this crisis”.
Keeping in view the hardships faced by infected individuals from the low-income households and communities, the donation by Khushhali Microfinance Bank reflects the philosophy of sustainable development and growth.
Khushhali Microfinance Bank Limited has continued to provide banking services to its customers during the lockdown while enforcing safety measures at its branches. Founded in 2000, Khushhali Microfinance Bank is a forerunner in the microfinance sector in Pakistan.
