“We implement a number of projects throughout the year in accordance with our Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy. Of course, such projects should be an essential signal for society, and should make people think.

Our first project within the framework of the Memorandum will be presented on the eve of March 8,” said Farid Huseynov, First Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of Kapital Bank
“I am sure that the signing of a memorandum with one of the leaders of the banking sector of Azerbaijan will lay the foundation for dynamic and comprehensive strategic partnership in achieving Sustainable Development Goals.
