To that effect, aiming to empower SMEs with the latest digital banking technology is one of the things we strive for through HNB TXB platform, enabling them to streamline their financial operations and unlock new opportunities for growth and success,” said Rajive Dissanayake HNB DGM SME & Microfinance.
