With this year’s Conference Theme: “ENABLING RURAL BANKS AMIDST CHANGING TIMES,” we are excitedly looking at how rural banks can adopt to new innovations and technologies in the banking industry, sustain profitable banking operations through effective credit access and guarantee programs while strengthening its regulatory compliance.
