KUALA LUMPUR, Wednesday, 25 August 2021:  Three Islamic banks are stepping up their efforts to better serve the asnaf and B40 communities in facing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic through the expansion of the iTEKAD programme (“iTEKAD 2.0”). Bank Muamalat Malaysia Berhad (“Bank Muamalat”) and CIMB Islamic Bank Berhad (“CIMB Islamic”) are joining Bank Islam Malaysia Berhad (“Bank Islam”) in offering this programme and set to amplify it further. This holistic social finance programme ensures sustainable income generation and financial resilience of the participants.
