Solutions for small businesses aimed at creating jobs and growing the economy

Our bigger-picture business approach enables us to have a holistic view of each business by understanding the vision, cashflow cycle, and transactional and capital expenditure needs. This way, we become trusted advisors to business owners who strive to grow their businesses

Small businesses often lack formalisation, as proved by many not qualifying for Covid-19 assistance due to outdated records and not meeting regulatory requirements. Sikwebu says that Nedbank’s experts are available to offer all the support small businesses need, which goes beyond affordable banking solutions. ‘We offer value-added services to get and keep your business going, like our free-to-join networking portal, SimplyBiz.co.za, The Essential Guide for Small-business Owners, business registration services and free small-business seminars.’

Nedbank’s Provincial Manager of Small Business Services in the Eastern Cape, Andisa Sikwebu, explains how brand values built on the bank’s expertise can benefit Nedbank clients, especially in what is now considered ‘the new normal’.

Sikwebu adds that the current economic climate has highlighted low financial literacy levels among small-business owners who find themselves highly indebted. ‘Nedbank Retail Banking helps clients with debt consolidation to ease their financial difficulties, and offers financial literacy programmes and tailormade solutions to empower them to save and make better financial decisions in future.’

Sikwebu says that for small-business clients, Nedbank continues to deliver end-to-end solutions through a dedicated business manager. ‘Our bigger-picture business approach enables us to have a holistic view of each business by understanding the vision, cashflow cycle, and transactional and capital expenditure needs. This way, we become trusted advisors to business owners who strive to grow their businesses.’
