Banca Kristal credit cards have the highest interest of all BCR credit cards.

The Banca Kristal was created by the BCR to cater exclusively to women, opening its doors in November last year.

According to the BCR and the Banco Nacional’s BN Mujer, women are better clients for credit, with lower delinquency rates.

Maria Aminta Quirece, manager of the Banco Nacional’s women’s banking program says that women have shown greater loyalty and customer satisfaction over men.
