The new branch was officially opened by Her Worship, Pauline Nashilundo, Swakopmund’s Mayor.

We look forward to Letshego’s new branch and team increasing our choice in financial services and ehancing access to finance for micro businesses in the area,” Nashilundo said at the official branch opening.
Officiating the event, Letshego’s Chief Executive Officer, Ester Kali said last year Letshego opened two new branches in Windhoek and Katutura, and have now added Swakopmud to the list of growing centres that Letshego supports.

Meanwhile, last year, Letshego launched its ‘All-in-1 LetsGo’ account, an easy-to-use, value adding account, that enables clients to save and borrow through one facility, earning competitive interest rates on low balances, to boost the local savings culture.
Furthermore, Letshego partnered with the government’s ‘Financial Literacy Initiative’ to support the training, empowerment and upskilling of community members in managing their money effectively, as well as using financial loans for productive and sustainable purposes.
