Laagste rentekoers in vier dekades

Of ’n boer nou ’n nuwe trekker begeer of van skuld ontslae wil raak - nóú is die tyd.

Dit volg ná me. Gill Marcus, president van die Reserwebank, aangekondig het dat die repokoers op 20 Julie met 50 basispunte tot 5% verlaag is.

Die prima-uitleenkoers is nou die laagste in bykans 40 jaar.

Me. Lindie Stroebel, hoofekonoom van die Landboubesigheidskamer (Agbiz), sê die doel van die verlaging is om die ekonomie in geheel ’n hupstoot te gee. “Dit behoort mense met skuld die geleentheid te bied om ’n bietjie asem te skep. Ander sal weer skuld maak, wat tot nuwe ekonomiese bedrywighede kan lei.”
