Following 18 months of construction, the Bank of Costa Rica (BCR – Banco de Costa Rica) will open a new branch in Nicoya this April, across from the catholic church. The building cost more than $3.75 million.
According to Marvin Corrales, the general manager of the bank, in addition to having more customer service booths, the new facilities will feature an auditorium for 72 people, a treatment plant, solar panels, a service garage, outside terraces and parking for 25 vehicles and bicycles.
Corrales indicated that the bank will be staffed with the same personnel as the current office, supported by personnel from the branches in Santa Cruz and Filadelfia for the first days after opening. There will be no new jobs.
As part of the new services offered, the bank will have security boxes (safes), a Regional Treasury and Business and PYMES Loans.
