Pakistan can make use of this freely available and widely distributed solar energy for improving the socio-economic conditions of the people living in remote areas and to reduce the poverty level. Such initiatives can play a significant role in order to provide a feasible solution to the energy crises being faced by the country and its citizens.   Over the last few years JS Bank has aggressively expanded its footprint across Pakistan with over 185 online branches in 100 cities. It is one of the fastest growing banks in the country which alludes to the financial strength of the Bank as well as its long-term approach to building businesses across market segments. The bank has been assigned credit rating of A+ by The Pakistan Credit Rating Agency (PACRA) which further indicates the financial health of the bank and the trust reposed in it by the countryís premier credit rating agency.
