BBK, Bahrain’s pioneer in retail and commercial banking, held a signing ceremony at the BBK Headquarters on the 30th of May, to confirm the offering of Personal Loans (both Consumer and Car Loans) to graduates registered with Tamkeen’s On-Job Training Scheme. The ceremony was attended by BBK’s Chief Executive Mr. A. Kareem Bucheery, Tamkeen’s Chief Executive Mr. Abdulellah Al-Qassimi, and Alatheer Audit & Consulting Managing Partner Mr. Mirza Al-Marzooq, along with other members of the three organizations. Through relationships such as this with Tamkeen, BBK is proud to provide a way of assisting organisations dedicated to supporting Bahraini communities.
With this exclusive Agreement between BBK, Tamkeen, & Alatheer Audit & Consulting, BBK will begin offering consumer and car loans to graduates registered with the Tamkeen On-Job-Training Scheme. These graduates will consist of individuals employed by Al Atheer Audit & Consulting on behalf of Tamkeen for two years, who are contracted to work in various governmental and private organizations throughout Bahrain as trainees. They are currently gaining valuable work experience in these organizations with the objective of obtaining long-term jobs upon completion of the two year training program or earlier than this period.
Mr A. Karim Bucheery, BBK CE commented saying: “As part of our social responsibility, this latest partnership ensures that these graduates, who may otherwise have struggled to receive financial help, will now be able to obtain financing for their personal requirements without delay or difficulty through any BBK branch in Bahrain.”
Tamkeen’s CE Mr. Abdulellah Al-Qassimi added, “backed up by our common belief in enhancing and enriching the Bahraini individual’s life style, which we believe is the stepping stone that takes us to a better standard of living in the Kingdom, we are proud to launch such an initiative with BBK, given their established backgrounds and outstanding banking history in Bahrain.”
Alatheer Managing Partner, Mr. Mirza Al-Marzooq commented, “it is our pleasure to have been selected as the project manager for Tamkeen OJT project and therefore contributing to achieving the national objectives of this project. The BBK program for loans offering is certainly a distinguished benefit to the graduates which can only be made by such a bank which strongly believes and practices the aspects of social responsibility”.
