Mid last year, I expanded my business and I really wanted to import some goods from another country. Despite the fact that I had some cash with me, the person who was to sell me the goods insisted that I have a financial institution that would ‘cushion him.’
I did not know what that meant by then since that was the first time I was importing goods from another country. A friend of mine who was already established in the business asked me if I had any idea of what ‘trade finance’ was and honestly, I had no idea.

I left Credit Bank that day with not only support my imports but with 360 support for my businesses after getting great pointers from the Trade Finance office.
Other than that, I think these guys are the best when it comes to trade finance because;
If you are looking for a partner to hold your hand down the business path, Credit Bank is what you should look for.
