"One of the bank's biggest aims is to help the society with the profit it generates. Due to the community fund project, we can provide financial aid to various projects taking place all over Maldives for the betterment of society", said BML's Public Relations Manager Mohamed Saeed.

"We have now helped conduct projects on ten islands", he added.

'Aharenge Bank Community Fund' was launched under the 'Aharenge Bank' programme which targets to enrich communal relationships. Under this programme, BML gifted 60 motorised wheelchairs to persons with disabilities within this year.
