Bank Windhoek expands footprint to rural Okahao

Bank Windhoek announced this week that it will officially open a new branch in Okahao as a sub-branch to the bigger Oshakati branch serving the eastern Omusati Region.

According to the Regional Manager: Far North at Bank Windhoek’s Retail Banking Services, Aloysius Garoëb, this branch will be located on the Main Road, and is the 10th branch in the far north region and 55th countrywide.

Garoëb said that they identified Okahao as an ideal location where banking services are required and therefore the new branch will have a full staff complement to serve their Okahao clients.

“The opening of Bank Windhoek Okahao reaffirms our commitment to bring banking to the people and improve access to banking in the rural areas,” added Garoëb.

Meanwhile, Garoëb said that their commitment to building relationships within the communities they operate in, remains a key focus of their organisation, tangible through various socio-economic and consumer education initiatives.
