Employees at the Sino-Industrial Park in Mbale City have been asked embrace a savings culture.

This call was made by officials from Diamond Trust Bank (DTB) at the commissioning of their new branch at the Sino-Industrial Park.

Samuel Matekha, the Marketing and Communications officer at Diamond Trust Bank said that the opening of a branch at the Industrial Park will help more than 30,000 employees to save their money as opposed to being extravagant. Some of the employees admitted to spending all their money after being paid. Matekha urged them to develop a savings culture in order to grow financially and fight poverty.

Varghese Thambi, the DTB managing director said that with over 40 industries at the park, there was a need to extend banking services closer to the people.

John Rex Achilla, the Resident City Commissioner Mbale City has welcomed the initiative by DTB. Achilla said the industrial park has created employment opportunities for many young people in Mbale City.
