NEWS AWARDS

10 year partnership Correction

In the DIY & Industrial Trade News February issue, page 30 it was reported ‘a toolbox for farmers’. Certain facts were erroneously  received and hence published accordingly. 

Build it gives Real People a recognition award, celebrating a 10 year partnership. BUILD IT AWARDED Real People consumer finance with an award in recognition of its 10 year partnership. In this decade Real People paid out R2.5bn to Build it stores for consumer finance which amounts to around 150 000 approved loans. The average basket size derived from the finance is R20 000. In one month Real People issued R645 000 to the best performing store. Real People play a vital role in lending to the emerging market and helping people build their homes timeously through Build it.

// REAL PEOPLE PLAY A VITAL ROLE IN LENDING TO THE EMERGING MARKET AND HELPING PEOPLE BUILD THEIR HOMES TIMEOUSLY THROUGH BUILD IT //

THE CORRECT FACTS ARE: The distribution relationship is between Bearing International (BI) and Gondolier, which is an importer of Jonnesway Professional Tools and not between BI and Jonessway directly. • Christie Brill’s title is Gondolier’s Media and Events Co-ordinator • The relationship between BI and Gondolier is eight years old, not five • The mention of the ‘of the 70 000 line items that Jonnesway has in its product portfolio internationally, Africa is not far behind in having access to about 50 000,’ is incorrect.

Stef Fourie, CEO Real People Home Finance Division receives its recognition award from Rob Lister, Build It divisional marketing director. The two companies 10 year partnership generated R2.5bn paid out to Build it stores for consumer finance.
