Lesotho’s first ever credit bureau was licensed in late 2013 and Mannete was appointed to set up and launch the business as the Country Manager. Using her refined relationship skills, she successfully collaborated with local microlenders, banks and retailers as well as the insurance, credit and telecommunications sectors for the collection of data.
Having previously enjoyed a long and fruitful career in credit at FNB, Mannete rose through the ranks into managerial positions. One of her greatest achievements was the reduction of the NPL book from 7% to 4%, which was within the approved threshold for NPLs.
Approachable and ready to help, Mannete is recognised as much for her attention to detail as for her problem-solving abilities.
