ENTERPRISE AND SUPPLIER DEVELOPMENT INSIGHTS

Absa Insights Series

Our foresight assists your business’s sustainable growth potential

We have created a platform for our sector experts to provide data driven insights that will help your business adapt and thrive in an ever-changing world.

SECTOR EXPERTISE

Matching Foresight with Sustainable Possibilities

In the next part of the Absa Insights series we discuss Enterprise and Supplier Development across Africa. Small and medium-sized businesses are likely to lead the economic recovery on the African continent, but until they can secure a genuine foothold in corporate value chains, the sector is likely to be dominated by a handful of players who had early-mover advantage and access to finance.

As a finance partner to a number of emerging businesses in Africa, we need to understand how we not only improve access to finance, but give them the right tools to facilitate their upward growth in the market.

Through the Absa Insights Series, we help our clients unlock their full growth potential through sustainable opportunities and solutions, ensuring a future for them, our planet and for generations to come.

David Mparutsa, Head: Enterprise and Supplier Development, talks about how we can practically grow SMEs in order to build our African economies.
