PM Khan appreciates JS Bank
Important to note, last month, PM Khan recognized JS Bank as the best private sector bank under the Kamyab Jawan Scheme.
In a bid to empower the youth, JS Bank provided value-added financial offerings and services to build entrepreneurial spirit. Under KJ YES, the bank created over 4000 jobs. The bank did this by distributing more than 1,000 loans with a cumulative value of over Rs 4.5 billion.
PM Khan congratulated JS Bank for its efforts to create livelihoods. He also said that the efforts of the bank are a benchmark for the financial industry.
