Meethaq, the pioneer of Islamic banking in Oman from Bank Muscat, hosted an event at Muscat Grand Mall to promote financial literacy and savings habit among children. Targeted at children below 12 years of age, Meethaq Baraem Account is the first Shari’a based children’s savings account in Oman. The account can be opened by parents/guardians on behalf of children. Baraem helps parents to save on behalf of children and at the same time inculcate the savings habit among children. On opening the account, a special welcome kit comprising Baraem Recognition Card entitles cardholders to discounts at various outlets, including book shops, restaurants and children’s clothing stores. Activity books and educational aids which spark creativity are also gifted to account holders.
