Save The Small Guys Campaign

Published on : 15/ July /2020

As the global pandemic hit every region in the world, businesses struggled to survive a declining economy driven by the pandemic’s development and the change in consumer purchasing behavior. Small business owners had to quickly shift their thinking from sustaining a business that satisfies local demand, to making sure their business survives this storm and makes it to the other end. 
During this time, Bank of Sharjah realizes the importance of extending support and lending a helping hand to the small businesses with big dreams, and we have hence introduced “Save the Small Guys”, an initiative that allows the local community to nominate small businesses for a chance to win a 25,000AED grant. 
Hand in hand with the local community, we aim to give these business owners a glimpse of hope into the future of their business and the chance they deserve to keep their vision alive.

The campaign is running on following Bank of Sharjah social media platforms:
