The banking sector in Botswana
Botswana’s banking sector is an increasingly important sector in terms of the supporting role it plays in the development of other sectors of the economy. The banking sector in Botswana is made up of commercial banks and a single building society, development finance and microfinance institutions.
All licensed commercial banks are predominantly foreign-owned and five major banks dominate the industry. With eight licensed commercial banks, fewer than 200 branches, and 542 ATMs, most analysts see opportunities for growth and expansion. However, no new bank has been approved since 2013.
The microcredit sector, including microloans, pawn shops, finance and leasing, is growing, as evidenced by the almost 10% increase in the number of approved actors between 2019 and 2020. The Microcredit sector is likely to grow, as more and more people seek financial inclusion. .
The government of Botswana has developed the financial inclusion strategy which runs from 2015 to 2021, through a multi-country initiative, Making Access Possible, and is committed to reducing the percentage of people financially excluded from 24% to 12% by the end of 2021.
Priority areas of the strategy include the payment ecosystem, access to low cost savings products, functioning of the credit market, accessible risk mitigation products, consumer empowerment, as well as financial protection and literacy.
