According to him, Frerol Rural Bank is determined to assist women in their businesses to make them financially self-reliant.

“As a citizen of this Region, I want to see a lot of businessmen rise out of this Region, and that is the main reason why we have come up with Frerol Rural Bank,” he added.

On his part, the General Manager of Frerol Rural Bank, Mark Krah, said the Bank has been well positioned and continues to grow despite the banking sector crisis and clean-up exercise.
