Eskan Bank (“EB” or the “Bank”) was established in 1979, with a unique social role to provide subsidized mortgages for low-to-middle income citizens of the Kingdom of Bahrain, as well as engage in community-related property development activities and facilities management.
The Government of Bahrain is the sole owner of the Bank which acts as the Ministry of Housing’s strategic partner and financial advisor. Both work together towards the continuous development of sustainable, best industry practice social housing programs and solutions. These combined facilitate Bahraini citizens access to a quality family home in a safe community, strengthening the fabric of our society, while driving innovation and economic growth.
The Bank, over time, has evolved to become a facilitator that connects financiers, landlords, developers and homebuyers in an innovative and comprehensive ecosystem constantly being optimized to ensure a housing solution that is a global benchmark.
Today the Bank is contributing more than ever to the social housing agenda. As we move forward, our focus will remain about optimizing Government resources while exploring smarter business models, in our never-ending quest to better support all stakeholders and meet the housing needs of our citizens while enriching their lives.
