London, 14 December 2020:
The Benghazi-headquartered Bank of Commerce and Development (BCD) announced yesterday that after years of closure, it has reopened its family-friendly bank branch, the Children’s branch.
The branch will provide banking services to children and their parents such as saving accounts for children, deposit accounts, special accounts for parents, and deposit and withdrawal services.
The bank reported that the branch will provide culture, knowledge, science and purposeful entertainment, embodied in the cultural and entertainment section attached to the Children’s branch, which includes various activities.
These include soft furnishings, play station games, a small cinema, table football and pool tables and a library.
It will encourage children to join a field of banking and financial affairs that are appropriate for their age groups, which helps them in training to complete their banking transactions to enhance independence and self-reliance from childhood in managing their financial affairs.
This includes completing banking transactions and getting accustomed to respecting time and following laws and regulations that are formulated in simple and sound terms, and create socially desirable behaviour, and establish the habit of saving from a young age.
