It provides customers with diverse solutions that simplify making payments while putting customers in control of their overall financial undertakings. Stanbic appreciates this new reality which is why we have invested so heavily in developing the latest digital banking platforms and promoting their usage,” Shem Kakembo, the Head of Personal Markets at SBU said during the event.
To participate, all one has to do is to make transactions of up to UGX 50,000 or more using Visa or MasterCard at participating outlets and you instantly get a voucher ranging from UGX 10,000 to UGX 60,000. Take the voucher selfie (or a pic of the Visa receipt) post it on the Stanbic Facebook or Twitter pages and get into the draw to win a supermarket trolley dash.
