Seven-a-side winners to get cash and bank accounts
This year, Bank Windhoek’s participation at the Windhoek Agriculture Show will be aimed at making a difference in the lives of some of the most financially excluded and under-banked members of Namibian society. The bank said it will host a Seven-a-Side Tournament for the farm workers of the farmers who will be exhibiting at the Windhoek Show.
The 300 farm workers that are expected to participate in the tournament will stand a chance to win the following prizes: The winning team will win N$1000 per player, the second team will win N$750 per player , and the third team will win N$500 per player.
The money will be deposited in a Bank Windhoek EasySave Account that will be opened for each player. The account can be opened at the nearest Bank Windhoek Branch of the farm at which the farm worker is employed.
“This is a good opportunity for farm workers who do not have bank accounts to open one and become active players in the financial sector. Bank Windhoek is committed to ensuring that we reach the targets set for financial inclusion in the Financial Sector Strategy which was launched in August 2012 by the Minister of Finance. We encourage all farmers and farm workers to participate in this tournament,” said Nora Ndopu, Communication Practitioner at Bank Windhoek.
The soccer tournament will start on Sunday, 30 September 2012 at the Bank Windhoek/Agra Ring Arena at the Windhoek Show grounds at 14:00 and will continue every evening from 19:00 to 21:00 from 1 to 4 October. The finals will be held on Thursday, 4 October at 19h00.
Bank Windhoek will also be sponsoring a 6-bar show jumping competition to the value of N$10,000, taking place on Saturday 29 September at the Bank Windhoek/Agra Ring Arena starting at 17:00.
Bank Windhoek staff members at the stall in the Main Hall will provide information on the Bank’s low-cost, easy to open and easy to maintain account, the EasySave transaction account.
