The organisation has said that its digital loan solutions will make funds available for customers to stock up, purchase necessary gift items for their loved ones, pay salaries and meet other financial obligations before, during and after the Valentine’s Day celebration.
Olajumoke Bello, Head, Enterprise Direct, Business and Commercial Client, Stanbic IBTC Bank, said, “Individuals need to show love and be loved in return. Gifting remains one of the best ways to express love, and limited cash should not hinder achieving this. As for businesses, none deserves to be cash trapped. They must seek easy and seamless opportunities to cash flow to keep the business running at all times.”
Olajumoke explained that the Bank has an SME EZ Cash short-term loan offering to business owners that fulfil specific qualifying requirements. It gives access to up to N5 million at a monthly interest rate of 3% and up to twelve months repayment period. Eligibility for EZ cash includes having an account for at least six months with no illegal overdrafts or returned cheques.
