Car and home expo keeps on getting better

MASERU – STANDARD Lesotho Bank Car and Home Expo keeps on getting better.
That is the verdict that came from 30 local and foreign exhibitors who showcased their offerings at the annual Car and Home Expo 2018.
Feroz Abdullah, who is the Managing Director of FRZ Construction, said this was their second time to participate at the expo.
He said the response from potential clients was phenomenal.

“Last year we had three clients whom we built houses for and they are complete now,” Abdullah said.
“However, there are many clients who are signing up their names.”
Abdullah said they expect their business to grow based on the potential list of clients they got at the expo.

An engineer at Tora Properties, Tšepiso Mofolo, said there is great support from Standard Lesotho Bank because it encouraged them to join the expo.
Although they were first timers at the expo, Basotho seem fascinated with the offerings from Tora Properties.
He said due to the appreciation of their service from Basotho, they wish to be part of the expo every year.

Mahindra Bloemfontein salesman, Aubrey Malesa, commended Standard Lesotho Bank for the initiative.
He noted that it was their first time participating and the reception was good.
“There are many prospective clients who acquire knowledge about Mahindra cars and existing clients who already work with Mahindra and want to top up on their range of cars,” Malesa said.
“The market is changing, and it is taking its own toll, every dealership wants to showcase its products,” he said.

A salesman from Volvo, Shakes Mopasi, added that they have been part of the expo since last year and it keeps on getting better therefore they do not regret coming to Lesotho.
Mopasi said usually on Mondays there were three buyers from the expo who came to their offices and “really the expo is good for us as dealerships”.

Standard Lesotho Bank Marketing Manager, Manyathela Kheleli, said the expo is an annual event in collaboration with car dealers and property developers.
“Everyone who banks with SLB and those not banking with it are welcome at this event. The bank in return finances whatever car or property of their interest based on their payslip, that is, if they afford it,” Kheleli said.

“This expo takes place at this time of the year because it is that time of the year which people want to celebrate their hard work or pamper their spouses,” he said.
He said the turn up of people implied that the bank is living up to its standards.
“We ensure that these offerings meet the clients’ (expectation).”
