Our services in 700 branches in Cameroon
Societe Generale Cameroon and Express Union have decided to combine their strengths and expertise to create the biggest financial Cameroonian network, with more than 700 branches.
Both financial leaders' customers will eventually be able to transfer diverse cash flows and rapidly withdraw cash at any branch of the network. Moreover, they will be able to transfer funds to their families without handling cash and withdraw and/or transfer money with their bank card via POS (point of sale) everywhere in the Express Union network.
This alliance allows Societe Generale Cameroon to make banking services available to customers in urban and rural areas, thus reasserting its position as a trusted customer-oriented bank.
Plan Campus: Building world-class universities
When the international rankings of universities are published, they are invariably led by the big US and UK academic powerhouses. Bringing many colleges together onto the same campus, they have the advantage of scale. But by building 12 super universities across the country, the French Ministry of Education aims to change this. Societe Generale Corporate & Investment Banking (SG CIB), in line with the Group’s commitment to young people and education, is playing a decisive role in this project.
A strong regional network and a dedicated point of contact for Deutsche Post DHL in Africa
Drawing on its international network and complementary areas of expertise, Societe Generale supports the major development projects of international corporations, with teams from across the Bank working together to offer fully integrated solutions. German group Deutsche Post DHL’s story is an example of this. A world leader in transportation and logistics services, they were looking for a single partner to handle their banking transactions and cash management needs in 13 countries across Africa.
Franfinance : a line of credit completely online
Franfinance is the first financial institution to offer electronic signatures for all types of credit. Prospective customers can now take out a line of credit completely online. This solution's main objective is to improve customer satisfaction, by reducing administrative delays when applying for a loan.
Open innovation: leverage for our transformation
Societe Generale’s Innovation approach is based on the creative force of its members of staff and on ties between internal communities and the innovation ecosystem. Aymeril Hoang, Head of Innovation for the Group, discusses this strategy.
For the love of the game
Societe Generale has been associated with rugby for nearly three decades. In India, the Bank is a partner of The Rugby Slums Club in Chennai. Through this collaboration, Societe Generale has been providing rugby training for children from underprivileged backgrounds for the past 3 months. Many local employees have been actively involved with the initiative, volunteering their time to share the spirit of rugby with the children. On 3 April, a training session was held by professional players from the Rugby Slums Club. Societe Generale’s volunteers also distributed 40 jerseys to the children present.
Rugby is growing to be a much loved sport in India, but to the children in Chennai, it's much more than that - it offers a means to leave their troubles behind. Thanks to rugby, the talented children are learning to channel their energy into something that keeps them fit and teaches them the important lesson of team work!
