GABORONE – In light of the many challenges faced by businesses across the globe as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Stanbic Bank Botswana has introduced a new offering titled “TradeClub.” This is a free service for the Bank’s existing Business Current Account holders.

Said Stanbic Bank Botswana Head of Enterprise Banking, Mr. Onkabetse Morapedi, “As Stanbic Bank Botswana, we are constantly looking for new ways to add value for our clients. With the current COVID-19 pandemic looming over businesses the world over, this is no different in Botswana. Thus, we reaffirm our commitment towards helping Batswana build their legacies and driving Botswana’s growth. The Stanbic Bank Botswana TradeClub is yet another demonstration towards realising this goal. The TradeClub offers a suite of solutions designed to enable business growth within the regulatory restrictions put in place as a result of the pandemic which had substantial impact on business operations.”

Some of the features of the TradeClub are as follows:

  • Alternative markets for one’s products as well as extensive research on these markets;

  • Online trade missions for networking purposes; and

  • A network of over 17,000 pre-vetted suppliers and buyers across 50 countries.

“As a bank, we always aim to be not just a place where one keeps their money, but a true financial partner dedicated to making our customers dreams possible. We realise the extent to which our clients’ businesses and the economy have been impacted by COVID-19 and wish to assist where we can by offering meaningful solutions that will make a real impact for customers and communities,” continued Morapedi. “The solution is offered free of charge (terms and conditions apply) and is a testimony of Stanbic Bank’s focus on supporting Small, Micro and Medium Enterprises (SMMEs) to enable them to grow by accessing more markets and more suppliers through the secure TradeClub.”
