Surprisingly, Wema bank starts its offers to SMEs with deposit account product. It is not clear if this implies the small business owners must open and operate a business account with the bank before they can have access to the Wema bank business loans facilities or other forms of supports. Wema bank enjoins the prospective beneficiary of the loan package to ”gain a competitive edge from the benefits of a Savings Account as an entrepreneur or small business owner.”
The first account Wema bank enjoins the prospective beneficiary to have is called ‘myBusiness Account’, which according to the bank, gives access to funding and credit packages. “myBusinessAccount” provides access to funding and credit packages to enable small business owners to build and maintain a thriving business over the long-term.
“myBusinessAccount” is meant for sole entrepreneurs, microenterprise business owners, small and medium scale businesses e.g., Private schools, Bakeries, Hospitals, Trading concerns, Commercial printers, Eateries, etc. The account has 3 variants – Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Some details of these variants will be given in the next week’s edition.
