 Lefa Card

 

Above is a sample of the membership card. Each trader member has the option of co-branding the card by adding a logo on the card for members that join the marketplace as a group or a community. An example of this is if a trader or agent manages to secure the business of a church or a school, they can then offer the church or school a chance to put their church or school emblem on the card. The trader or agent can then be able to market their products or services to the consumers through the school or church.
