Ntando Nkambule

Graduate Research Intern

Ntando Nkambule is a Graduate Research Intern at the Eswatini Economic Analysis and Research Centre (ESEPARC). His research interest is skewed towards micro-finance and women’s empowerment. He will be working on a study on the role of stokvels in improving people’s lives in Eswatini communities.

Ntando recently participated in the Fintech challenge run by the Central Bank of Eswatini. He studied for a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Economics at the University of Eswatini (UNESWA). Ntando aspires to be a policy analyst and hopes the internship at ESEPARC will help him understand the value of overlooked micro economic activities and how these create opportunities that need to be seized.
