Standard Bank Namibia has boosted the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) industry by pumping in a total of N$35 000 in support of the Katutura Expo
It made two seperate donations of N$15 000 first, before giving a further N$20 000.
“Standard Bank Namibia believes in promoting SME’s and entrepreneurial development as part of our corporate social responsibility,” says Surihe Gaomas, Manager of PR and Corporate Communication.
She says such activities (Expo's) not only promote local businesses, but also lead to economic empowerment, poverty alleviation and employment creation.
The 2013 Katutura Expo is currently underway at the Katutura Multipurpose Centre and aims to serve as a catalyst for re-engineering of the Katutura business model.
That is in order to bring about a positive paradigm shift for the benefit of local entrepreneurs within Katutura.
The Expo which ends on Sunday, is hosted by the Katutura Central Constituency Office under the theme: “Attaining Economic Growth through Economic Empowerment.”
Standard Bank Namibia is backing the expo since its inception in 2011.
