Said Desma Elvis-Ncaagae at Stanbic Bank Botswana, “As a bank, we constantly strive to innovate in an ever evolving business climate, and the trade finance area presented a clear need. The challenges faced by entrepreneurs are in bridging the gap between supplying products and receiving payments from the debtors, and the introduction of these new payment platforms works to counter that.”
