NICKY AND JONATHAN OPPENHEIMER STAND ALONGSIDE SOUTH AFRICANS IN THE BATTLE AGAINST COVID-19, WITH R1 BILLION TO SMME EMPLOYEES
We are deeply concerned about the unfolding global health crisis. As proud South Africans, we welcome our government’s robust and timely efforts to stem the tide. Success in the face of such adversity will require all of us, working together, to beat the virus and minimise its impact. We have great faith in our collective strength and resilience as a nation to face and overcome this unprecedented challenge.
At the same time, we know that the necessary response measures – in South Africa, and around the world – will come at a great cost to our economy. Small businesses in particular will struggle with supply chain disruptions and decreased demand. We are likely to see unemployment increase with greater uncertainty and any protracted global slowdown.
We are determined to play our part in this fight, in partnership with the South African Government and banking sector.
We pledge R1bn to extend a financial lifeline to employees of Small, Medium, and Micro-sized Enterprises (“SMMEs”).
