Cogebanque, a Rwandan commercial bank has said it is interested in registering new clients from the Congolese community.
On day three of Tour of Rwanda, riders showed what they do best in stage two of the competition; Nyanza-Rubavu, the longest stage of 180km.
The destination is neighbouring Goma-Eastern part of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), one of the biggest trade partners of Rwanda.
Cogebanque, an esteemed sponsor of the tournament said it is time for the Congolese business community to also come and enjoy its products.
“The rally is going well and the Rwandan community is participating more than we have ever seen. As sponsors, this is really encouraging because our clients are getting to know our products,” Theonestine Mukabanana, Cogenanque Marketing Manager told KT Press.
“Our Congolese neighbors are also welcome since we have all they need. As you know, at Cogebanque a client is a king.”
Cogebanque has recently added a new product on their list. Itezimbere, is a bank account esteemed clients open free of charge and is maintenance free.
Moreover, Cogebanque has gone an extra mile while to bring an electronic card that clients can use at any bank. One can apply for the card without necessarily having an account at Cogebanque.
“As you know, we usually have too much insecurity in Congo. So, I am happy to hear I can save with Congebanque in Rwanda and withdraw my money from my home country with my pre-paid MasterCard,” a Congolese businessman told KT Press.
“I will open an account in the very near future.”
Meanwhile, Congebanque is one of the main sponsors of Tour du Rwanda 2017. It rewards three best climbers of each stage.
The first best climber gets $300, the second $150 while the third is rewarded with $50. The best climber of the 2nd stage was Green Eduard from Lowestrates – Canada.
