Among these exceptional graduates is Michael Taligatus, who received the Grade 10 Dux award for his outstanding academic results in 2022.

Upon receiving the award, Michael expressed his gratitude, saying, "I would like to thank KTF for giving us this opportunity. It is a second chance for us, and most of us don't really get this second chance.”

Bank drives accessibility and inclusion

Recently at the Kina Waigani branch, the bank conducted an accessibility audit in collaboration with the PNG Assembly of Disabled Persons (PNGADP).

The audit took place in the branch with members from DisAbility Association of PNG to review the functionality of our branches for people living with disabilities. 

Links of Hope supported

The partnership between Links of Hope and Kina Bank arose from the late Nancy Moka, who was a founding board member and active volunteer living on site to support children who had lost parents to HIV.

When she passed from COVID-19 in 2021, Kina Bank discovered her deep ties to Links of Hope and has, since then, made a commitment to continue late Nancy’s legacy with the annual donation.

“This kind of innovation will be groundbreaking for businesses in PNG,” Kina Chief Transformation Officer, Ivan Vidovich, said.

Through a collaboration with global fintech, Xero, Kina has developed and launched its new platform, Kina Xero Bank Feed, which is a cloud-based software that provides online tools to manage everyday business needs.

Kina Bank Opens Alotau Branch

Kina continues to provide financial inclusion partnership with MiBank and the establishment of this Co-Branded Branch concept is a reflection that both Banks are looking to serve the market.

The Alotau branch will fully open to customers tomorrow, July 4.

Executive General Manager Banking and Country Head, Lesiel Taviri said without such commitment to expanding services, people will continue to be disadvantaged through a lack of branch banking services and limited choices to manage their finances.

Milk program promotes healthy living

The initiative was supported and funded by Kina Bank, and for four months, children from Nonu Independent Institute of Education enjoyed Illimo Dairy Milk Sticks for breakfast; a healthy way for them to start their school day.   
Malnutrition is a major problem in PNG, particularly for children in settlements experiencing a lower standard of living. 

Cash Incentive Launched For Home Buyers

The K2000 incentive will be paid once a home loan settles and represents a market first for Papua New Guinea.

Kina Bank's Executive General Manager of Banking and Country Head, Lesieli Taviri, said the initiative rewards borrowers and helps them on their home-buying journey.

“Additionally, we will be offering an aggressive 5.47 per cent rate for these loans.  Once again, we’re providing a market leading offer that offers people choice,” Taviri said.

Kina Bank Single View gives customers the ability to link participating superannuation accounts to their Kina Bank Personal Online Banking profile. Customers can then view their current superannuation balance alongside their banking products in a single view.

A digital banking leader, Kina Bank worked with PNG’s major superannuation funds, including Nasfund and Comrade Trustee Services, to develop the Single View platform.
