BML revealed that the first quarter of the year saw good business volumes across key sectors.

With loan book quality continuing to improve, BML revealed that MVR 967 million was provided to individuals and businesses in new loans, during the period.

Highlighting that capital and liquidity remain solid and well above regulatory requirements, the bank added that the total assets at the end of the quarter stood at MVR 46.3 billion.

During the quarter, BML’s network expansion and community investment program continued as well, with new self-service banking centers unveiled in Hulhumalé Phase II, Gulhi island in Kaafu atoll and Keyodhoo island in Vaavu atoll.

BML in January further reduced its student ‘Kiyavaa Loan’ and Education Financing rate to 2.5 percent.
