Concluding the 2019th, anniversary year for Eskhata Bank, we would like to first of all thank our clients, partners and shareholders for being with us this year. We wish you great success in the New Year, good health, happiness and joyful events. 

In November 2019, Eskhata Bank turned 25 years old, and this is a significant date for our entire team. Over 25 years, we have achieved a lot, there have been successes and defeats, but the team of like-minded people of the bank has always strived to move forward, to occupy leading positions, to be useful to our clients. 

 The results of 25 years of activity were marked by a series of events throughout 2019, which were aimed both at supporting and motivating clients, gratitude to partners for fruitful cooperation, and at supporting the public, and for the most part had a social character.

Upon completion, 75 people became owners of intermediate and main prizes of the action and 100 people received encouraging cash prizes.
