This is a golden opportunity for Batswana to own their first home. “Home ownership is one of the best ways of creating wealth as the value of the asset increases over time, therefore if one maintains consistent repayments into their mortgage they are well positioned to take financial advantages of home ownership,” said FNBB Head of Home Loans, Kelebogile Shala Mading.
