An informative, motivational session sponsored by Standard Bank with expert advice on what to do (and not to do) when taking a loan

If you’ve reached the point where you’re considering taking another loan, or if you’re struggling to pay one off, here is some advice that might help. We’re calling all stokvel members – and any financially minded individuals – to the FREE DRUM virtual event sponsored by Standard Bank.

Hosted by DRUM editor Thulani Gqirana, those who tune in will have a chance to hear Magdeline Thidiela speak about responsible borrowing. She is the head of client solutions at Standard Bank, where her team’s main focus is to make the process of borrowing easier, as well as helping clients to continue paying those loans off. Apostle Negross Manana will open the event with some motivational words, and then we’ll be treated to a talk by the stokvel expert Busi Skenjana. She’ll talk about that very necessary exercise that all stokvels should go through: setting goals. The talk will empower, educate and entertain, and equip you to start 2021 on a positive note. Our editor will also be giving away some prizes at the end!
