It may seem it’s everybody’s business, whether he or she will understand what kind of transaction is made, whether this person will be able to plan exactly how to take a credit or to make a deposit, but this is not like that. IDBank’s interested to have informed customers, who ask the right questions and receive the right answers. In this framework IDBank, together with its specialists and resources, is ready to support the rise of financial education”, said Tatevik Vardevanyan and added that such kind of initiatives will continue.
