Israel Arinaitwe, the Head of Personal Banking at Stanbic Bank said after the last quarter of the year which is characterized by high-spending, individuals and businesses need cash in the first quarter to finance their plans for the year. “We acknowledge that the new academic year is opening, and we know what that means for parents, schools, and businesses linked to the education ecosystem and in a market where interest rates can be as high as 25 percent, Stanbic is offering Ugandans the opportunity to borrow up to Shs200 million at as low as 16 percent per annum or 1.3 per month, at no arrangement fees,” said Israel.

Aaron Akampa, the Head of Enterprise Banking at Stanbic Bank said, “School owners can apply to access for up to Shs3 billion for a 5-year school development loan, or Shs500 million under the Unsecured Bridge Financing Solution to assist them to cope with expenses on basic supplies and utilities needed to start the new term.” Akampa added that, knowing how time is an important factor in business, the bank has enhanced its credit processing efficiency enabling applicants to access credit within 24 hours. “We are also saying, small and medium enterprise (SME) owners can apply for SME Business Loans of up to Shs200 million for six months with interest rates starting at 20% p.a. under the Stanbic Enterprise category, accessible within 48 hours after success application,” he said.
