Letshego Changes Name To Reflect Pan-African Ambitions

Letshego has announced the change of its holding company name from Letshego Holdings Limited to Letshego Africa Holdings Limited. The Botswana-born company is an inclusive finance organisation extending microfinance, banking and consumer lending solutions in eleven subsidiaries across sub-Saharan Africa.  

Marking the name change at the Opening Bell event held at the Botswana Stock  Exchange, Letshego’s Group Board Chairman, Philip Odera, noted the significance of the name change as reflective and reiterative of Letshego’s differentiating pan-African presence and reach in terms of extending inclusive financial solutions to underbanked communities across the continent’s emerging markets.  

In addition, the Group is initiating an annual ‘Letshego Africa Day’ on the first Friday of every December. This annual anniversary will serve to celebrate, share and promote the value that Letshego’s inclusive finance strategy achieves in terms of social, environmental and economic development returns across the continent.  

Letshego was incorporated in 1998, is headquartered in Gaborone and has been publicly listed on the Botswana Stock Exchange (BSE) since 2002.
