Since July 2022 when Ghana announced its IMF programme, the economy has taken a nosedive and businesses across sectors have been severely impacted. Developing a new sustainable business model is the only way to stay afloat, says Mabel Porbley, the managing director for Sanlam General Insurance in an interview with The Africa Report.

In 2018, Sanlam, in its quest to become the largest pan-African insurer and also increase its footprint in Africa, bought 100% of Saham Group’s shares. This means that the South African insurance giant now has operations in 33 countries, including Ghana.
