Experience & Activities
She has streamed lined the Computer Loan application process so members do not wait for an inordinately long time to get computers, as also the Hypothecation Loan. Even while on short leave locally or abroad, she never misses an opportunity to ensure that all members files are promptly dealt with and they are satisfied. One cannot help but admire her persistence (although mildly annoying at times), when she is dealing with a members’ situation. A team player, she never misses an opportunity to lend support to a member in trouble irrespective of where the member is located. After a full work week, she traverses the length and breadth of the island on weekends, to give support to members’ in need.
