OMDis, Uconomy Namibia and Nedbank Namibia announce collaboration

12 November 2021 | Banking

Oranjemund has often been seen as a secluded town, yet its evocative beauty has made it one of the must-visit places in Namibia. The announcement of an extensive collaboration between OMDis, Uconomy Namibia and Nedbank Namibia is set to increase the allure even further.

“OMDis has been established to transform our town and accelerate its economic diversification, such that it evolves into a vibrant centre for enterprises and provide further impetus for businesses operating in Oranjemund. This collaboration that we are undertaking with Nedbank Namibia and Uconomy Namibia will unquestionably usher in a new era for both our town and the rest of Namibia in supporting SME development,” said the general manager of OMDis, Tony Bessinger.

Scha van Niekerk says Uconomy Namibia has the perfect model to support the OMDis vision for Oranjemund. “We have extensive experience in building viable enterprises within the areas of our operations.”

Nedbank Namibia’s managing director, Martha Murorua, says the multi-faceted collaboration has been months in the making. “We are excited for the opportunity to make such a meaningful impact and improve the livelihood of entire communities. Whilst this collaboration is seen as a pilot project, we are creating a blueprint that can ultimately be scaled throughout Namibia.”

Murorua says that Nedbank Namibia is invested in providing opportunities for Namibia’s youth to chart their own destinies and contribute to the economic prosperity of the country. “It has never been lip service for us, and the development of our ‘Young Professionals’ product offering is testimony of our resolve to continue our deep involvement in youth-driven enterprise development,” she said.
