Central Bank of Liberia Executive Governor, J. Aloysius Tarlue, Jr. took a team of United States Agency for International Development (USAID) officials, headed by the USAID-Liberia Mission Director Sara Walter, on a tour of the CBL Cash Hub that is currently under construction in Gbarnga, Bong County to inspect progress thus far.
Bong County Superintendent Esther Walker was on hand to welcome the CBL and USAID team, expressing satisfaction with the level of work on the Hub.
CBL Executive Governor J. Aloysius Tarlue, Jr. said: “The CBL Cash Hub is good for Bong County and good for accessibility because of the central location of Bong County. It will attract banking institutions to rural areas.”
The Project Supervision Consultant, Mr. Cedrick Windell Reeves, took the CBL-USAID team on a tour of the facility, providing an update on work at the facility.
LRA and CBL tellers will be at the Cash Hub to receive tax payments, as well as a Banking Hall set up, where deposits and withdrawals can be made.
Basically, the Cash Hub will be a CBL Bank replicated in Bong County. The CBL-USAID team was then informed that the construction work, which started in February this year, will be completed, and become operational in time for July 26, 2021.
