PPC Building Homes Through Stokvels- Strength Beyond The Bag


Leading cement supplier in southern Africa, PPC Cement has extended their reach into the community once again. As part of their customer-value initiatives, PPC has created a programme for Stokvels. With the bulk buying frenzy back again due to the festive season, Stokvels across the country will be spending their hard earned cash that they have saved throughout the year. A stokvel is a social club formed with people who are saving towards the same goal, in this instance building towards renovating or building. PPC is encouraging their customers to build and renovate their homes through the PPC Stokvel programme. It will be the first of many to run in the future to encourage more people to build and renovate their homes.

Individuals save for different reasons every year. If building or renovating homes is part of the objectives for your Stokvel then the PPC Stokvel is the right one to join in 2015. Partaking in the PPC Stokvel for the year will help you push to finish that building project you’ve always wanted to start. Educational academy sessions will be conducted  for all the stokvel members. The purpose of these informative sessions are to help the individuals learn more saving for a home and get technical support on building.

PPC General Manager of Marketing Services, Sibongile Mooko said, “At PPC, we pride ourselves on being more than simply cement producers. We help our customers shape their success through our superior products, efficient deliveries, builder’s application and technical support. PPC, with its cement products not only has the ability to help customers realise their construction dreams, but also has the compassion to improve the lives of many South Africans”.

A motivational speaker will be available to inspire the Stokvel members at the Stokvel network forums. In addition, PPC hints and tips on quality home building and improvement as well as financial advice on budgeting and getting home loans will be given.
