Mbabane here we come!
We would like to thank the people of Madlangempisi, for their hospitality during our visit totheir area last week. The visit was mutually beneficial as many people got to have their queries addressed, signed up for new policies, and paid their premiums, while we were able to assess what our customers in the area needed from us. We are on the move again; from last week Thursday to end of February we will be stationed at the Mbabane Plaza, bringing all our insurance products closer to the people again.We invite you to come pay us a visit so that you are informed about our latest insurance options designed for you. Since we are bringing a functional office, all services shall be offered including policy uptake, upgrading and more.

There is an array of products to choose from in our portfolio, these include Life Policies, Funeral policies, Health insurance products, Legalinsurance and even loans.

There is no need to wait until disaster strikes before you start
looking around for the right medical cover for your child. There are still a few people that believe insurance policies are a waste of money, but not having medical insurance in place will see you having to unnecessarily cough up more in the event of illness. Sometimes lives are also lost because of that really grave oversight because some medical procedures cost a lot, to a point where people sometimes painfully opt to forego them for lack of funds, or precious time is lost while they try to pool funds. The Student Medical Cover will ensure you won’t ever have to jump through hoops to get medical attention for your child.
