Prospective vehicle and home loan customers had all their queries addressed as Standard Lesotho Bank (SLB) hosted a car and home exhibition at Maseru Mall last Saturday.
Both local and foreign exhibitors of different vehicle brands, property developers and other supporting services showcased their offerings at the annual event.
SLBâ€™s Marketing Officer, TÅ¡epo Monyatsi, told Newsday that the exhibition was aimed at showcasing the bankâ€™s vehicle and home building solutions to prospective clients in an informal set-up.
This was to give prospective clients a chance to inquire bankâ€™s services and also to allow them to give feedback on its service delivery.
â€œWe have local companies as well as those from South Africa,â€ Monyatsi said.
â€œThe exhibition is meant for everyone, not only people who are looking to buy but also other people who may have questions about our solutions,â€ he added.
He indicated that during the exhibition, their staff â€œis available to answer to many questions that people have about our services which include home loans, vehicle loans as well as assets finance.â€
Monyatsi said the annual exhibition had already been staged for over five years. He said they normally have more than 13 vehicle brands and more than 16 home planners participating in the event.
â€˜Mathabo Shai, one of the potential clients at the expo said being at the expo would save her the trouble of having to queue up at the bank to seek clarifications on her enquiries.
â€œI am able to get answers on questions I have without having to go and spend the whole day at the bank. I think it is interesting because we find companies in one place other than having to move from one company to another,â€ she said.
â€˜Mankito Mahlomola, one of the exhibitors from Greenland Farm Suppliers, said the exhibition helped them to be closer to potential clients in order to get answers for all the questions they may have at a convenient while they are doing their shopping.
Mahlomola said the exhibition helped them to get more information about the companies since most brands did not have local agencies nearby.
She indicated that the reason Greenland Farm Suppliers took part in the exhibition was to bring services closer to farmers as well as advise them about which kind of seeds they can use.
