According to the bank’s managing director, Reinette van der Merwe, the project presents opportunities to the youth in those areas. She said the card fulfills the bank’s corporate social responsibility mandate as well as enhance their involvement in protecting the natural resources of Botswana and youth empowerment.

“To get the debit card you have to be a current Barclays customer. If you are a first timer, you will be issued this card once your account is active and opened.
