The re-launch of Commercial Credit’s presence in Ratnapura is an extension of this service promise, as the company aims to build strong customer relationships through an enhanced and extended portfolio of services. Regional Manager Ratnapura Branch Ayesh Pitigala said “Our aim is to help the people of Ratnapura realise their financial aspirations through the variety of flexible services that we offer, facilitating the district’s economic empowerment.”
