The week officially started on Monday, October 3, and will run until October 7. The official opening took place at the BPR Bank head offices in an event presided by George Odhiambo, the bank’s Managing Director, and celebrated under the theme “Feel The Embrace.”
During the event, Odhiambo congratulated the staff for the good services they have been offering for the past months and urged them to continue exceeding customers’ expectations.
