It seems exciting developments are happening at the National Building Society.  Today the Society opened doors to Zimbabwean SMEs, inviting all registered SMEs and entrepreneurs to open an account within their SME Suite which essentially has 3 account classes: silver, gold and platinum.  Speaking at the official launch, the NBS Head of Marketing Miss Mildret Kujinga said that NBS is in pursuit of building communities and the Society is set to prioritise SMEs on housing delivery projects.  She went on to say that they have bespoke mortgages products that will enable a good number of Zimbabwean entrepreneurs to secure homes with NBS as long as they log in their innovation with the NBS Suite and also embark on traceable business banking with the Society.

The launch event was graced by selected SME representatives who testified on how their businesses operating efficiencies had been improved by the facilities they get from NBS.  In pursuit of establishing empowered communities, NBS has rolled out digital platforms which will aggregate as a digital marketplace where sellers and off-takers can interact as well as exchange payments, all happening on the NBS banking ecosystem. Miss Kujinga went on to say,

“Finally, it seems the giant is awakening as the Society is signing up new high value clients and lots of corporate clients are now banking and investing with NBS”.

The Society has ramped up its digital offering which is key to creating business banking operating efficiencies designed to meet the diverse need of SMEs.  The launch event was covered by prominent media houses and top journalists who were keen to unpack the Society’s transformative story.  Recently NBS published its Half Year Financials which revealed a firm balance sheet.  It only makes sense and finally NBS seems to be becoming a household name in the banking sector.  Indeed the SwitchToNBS campaign has domineered the social media space.
