Regional Development Bank, Sri Lanka’s official bank for Divinaguma
has set a target of opening one million Divinaguma accounts across the
country before the end of 2013.
RDB, Chairperson Keshala Jayawardana in an interview with Daily News
Business said RDB has succeeded in opening 300,000 new Divinaguma bank
accounts within one years time and measures have been taken to open
another 700,000 Divinaguma accounts across the country within this year.
It is heartening to note that a large number of small and middle
scale entrepreneurs have opened Divinaguma accounts with us and all the
money deposited by account holders will be utilized for the upliftment
of the rural community.
Divinaguma bank accounts holders are entitled to enjoy a number of
privileges being a part of this account scheme and anyone who aspires to
become a part of this project can open an account in any RDB Branch
