At Kentucky’s Independence Bank, economic inclusion is a daily practice. In 2019, the U.S. Census reported that over 13% of the Graves County population identified as Hispanic, meaning that many community members would need access to a bilingual banking experience. Jorge Bartolo, a Customer Service Representative at Independence Bank, assists customers in ensuring all of their banking needs are met. As a Hispanic and bilingual community member, his role also extends to providing Spanish speakers with the highest level of customer service.
