First Finance Company is giving back E72,000 over six weeks to 18 clients as part of its Back-To-School 2023 promotion to ease the burden of school fees and to support its clients to meet their needs and achieve their aspirations.
In the promotion which was officially launched on January 23, the company is giving cashback worth E4,000 per branch per week to ease the burden of school fees and other sundry bills that comes with the resumption of a new academic term on parents and students.
The promotion will run for six weeks. Today, First Finance gave back E24,000 to six winners for the first and second week of the promotion. This means that each of the six winners from the three branches took home E4,000.
The prize presentation was held at the company’s head office at Intfuntfuko Building in Mbabane.
One of the winners, a retiree Hlatshwako Vailinah Matubu thanked First Finance for the sheer surprise. She borrowed money to pay tuition fees for her child.
“This is the first of its kind opportunity for me to be awarded by the company from the 37 years I have worked before retirement.”
Another winner, Dlamini Sipho Martin also thanked the company for the opportunity to win cashback.
“I received a call and at first I thought it was a scam when I was informed that I have won. Now that I am here, I can see that this is not a scam. This money comes at a time this is marred by economic challenges and it will have a huge impact on our households. We are struggling to take our children back to school in light of the ongoing economic challenges. Therefore, we thank First Finance for being there for us in this time of great need. Regardless of the challenges we face financially, at least our children’s future will not be compromised,” he said.
First Finance General Thulani Dlamini congratulated all the winners. He said the Back-To-School promotion underscores the company’s principle of responsible lending and is also in line with their new Strategic Plan 2022-2027, which amongst other things prioritizes improving customer experience.
“We launched this campaign to ease the burden of school fees and to support our clients to meet their needs and achieve their aspirations. Every child deserves better education, and as they are now back in class, we are helping our clients who need that extra support,” he said.
“We care about our customers; hence we have been in business for the past 13 years. We will continue working hard to simplify our customer journey so that our clients can benefit most from simple, efficient, and convenient processes. We will continue to review and revolve to keep our customer journey as simple as possible,” he further stated.
To stand a chance to win a share of the E72, 000 cash back, all that First Finance customers need to do is to apply for a general-purpose loan or rollover from any of the three First Finance branches in Mbabane, Manzini, and Nhlangano. The offer is available to salaried employees of government, parastatals, and selected private companies.
