Emirates Islamic has transformed nine branches to provide people of determination with convenient user experiences. The initiative is part of the bank’s commitment to create a financially inclusive community for people of determination in the UAE in line with UAE Vision 2030’s goal of building a cohesive society.
Seven branches in Dubai and one each in Sharjah and Ajman are among the first of several branches within the bank’s network that were modified to better suit the needs of people of determination. To enhance mobility access, the branches are now equipped with sliding doors, ramps with handrails, and accessible low-height ATMs, teller desks and cheque writing counters.
