Head of Products and Market Development at the group level in Polaris Bank, Adebimpe Ihekuna, said the bank is passionate about providing necessary support for the private sector in a bid to aid faster economic transformation in the country.

According to her, “Polaris Bank is passionate about the health sector in Nigeria and is willing to support the private sector to drive the most desired growth needed for its transformation,”

The major focus of the loan bundle are Pharmacies, Optometry and Dental clinics, including medical laboratories and diagnostic centers. Entrepreneurs in the healthcare sector who need funding, and fall within the specified segment should approach any Polaris Bank branch in their areas.
