SMEs entrepreneurs rely on technological solutions in which NBK excels, locally and regionally, thanks to its progress in implementing its Digital Transformation Strategy, which was reflected in providing advanced digital services and adding many improvements to existing services, basically NBK Mobile Banking,” he added.

Since the early days, it stopped charging fees on POS terminals and exempted customers from the monthly rental fees of POS terminals for 3 months. In addition, the bank did not stop communicating with entrepreneurs but rather intensified virtual meetings through different digital platforms to discuss with them integrated banking solutions available in an easy and safe way. With the gradual return to normal life, the bank assigned 8 additional branches to serve Business Banking Customers in addition to the Ahmad Al-Jaber Branch, with 5 of them tailored specifically for the benefit of Business Banking Plus customers.
