Las Tunas.- April 30, 1994, was the first day of work for Mara Luz Matos Bravet at the Banco Popular de Ahorro (BPA); he remembers it with the precision of a Swiss watch. “I didn’t come to the bank looking for a job, but she knocked on my door,” she recalls now that she has accumulated almost three decades of work at this financial institution and is grateful for the first opportunity that made her grow. As a professional and a human.

“BPA is already four decades old. In the first 10 years of its existence, it was founded and founded, so I almost feel like a founder. I’ve witnessed many changes during this time, from manual work to digital transformation, and on the other hand, I’ve also been able to share in the employees’ responses to each process.

“Just as the country has had its historic generation, I understand that the bank has had one too, and I am very proud to be a part of it. There is a new generation now and many of us are about to retire, but I hope that those who “We will take on the same responsibility,” emphasizes Matos Bravet, who runs the Savings Bank in the La Victoria district of the city of Las Tunas.

Responsibility, respect, discretion, honesty, and dedication are words associated with BPA that she has not lacked in her daily practice or in the teaching of every student she has trained. These principles apply to Ana Iris Aguilera Carralero, who has been with the company for 38 years, most of them as an auditor.

Now the trained dermatologist is preparing for a new phase in her life: retirement.

I have always enjoyed helping youth and educating youngsters to do their best in their performance, to communicate, to love their work, to present themselves with a good forl education and customer service… that’s how it will be; there will be no dissatisfied or poorly looked after people,” he points out, thereby acknowledging his reputation as an educator
