The   branches operate on their own with minimal support from the head office. We currently have branch offices located in Lae, Madang, Mt Hagen, Kokopo, Goroka and Tabubil. The National Council wants to see branches established in provinces that have a minimum of five (5) financial members. The Lae branch office is staffed with a full time Office Manager and it is the intention of the National Council to establish regional offices.
