The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Banco Popular announced a new savings plan that can be opened with only 10,000 colones.

According to Victor Rodriguez, director of retail banking, this is an alternative for those who want to save some money for unforeseen events that can be opened quickly in any branch of the bank.

According to recent data in Costa Rica, at least 50% of people have no savings, which affects the level of debt facing the population.

Another alternative to save, according to Rodriguez, is opening a deposit certificate, or certificado de depósito a plazo, in colones and dollars. These constitute a security that also can be used as collateral for a loan.

On August 30 of this year, Banco Popular registered a balance portfolio of over 189 billion colones in long-term savings plans. (Crhoy)
