The branch offers constant leasing and financial services to over 2000 customers in the vicinity, and is a reputed financial entity in Negombo.

Negombo Branch Manager Nalin de Silva speaking at the occasion said: “PLC was first commissioned within the People’s Bank with only three people and PLC Negombo branch too followed suit. Over the past 15 years, we have built close relationships with people in Negombo and did business with the intent of upgrading their lives, thus we achieved these feats. I pay my gratitude to our customers who were the backbone behind the success story of PLC Negombo branch. My staff members worked as a team all these years to meet the company’s objectives and to elevate the status of the Negombo branch. I pay my gratitude to them at this significant occasion.”
