As per the deal, customers of Eskan Bank’s Housing Loan scheme will now have access to a personal loan along with the option of a credit card through BMI Bank.

"This further accelerates our customers’ ever-growing need for an improved lifestyle and their constant demand for viable solutions to accomplish it," he added.
Welcoming the BMI partnership Eskan general manager and board member Sabah Almoayyed said, “We are delighted to reach this agreement with BMI Bank as it coincides with the efforts to further involve the private sector in the housing and economic development of the country."
