The new premises is strategically located to ensure easier access to the branch for customers in the locality and persons passing through the area,  making it much more convenient for existing customers and potential customers to access the full range of finance expertise provided by MBSL.

As always, our highly trained staff is dedicated towards the highest quality of services, and I believe the combination of convenience, range of services and quality of personnel, will result in improved performance,” he further said.
