RETAIL: Actively providing financial services for people, individual consumers and their households, as well as for MSMEs and local authorities: financing the real economy;

REGIONAL: Deploy broad distribution networks rooted within the communities they serve, including local and regional outreach in both urban and rural areas. Savings mobilized locally support the local economy;
