Cave Shepherd & Co. Limited through its Card Services Unit is pleased to congratulate Xade Blades for emerging as the inaugural winner of the Cave Shepherd Student Smart Card Scholarship.  The scholarship carries a cash prize of $1,000.00 for tuition and school supplies.  Additionally, we are extremely excited to welcome Ms. Blades as the ambassador for the Cave Shepherd Student Smart Card in 2021.

In July 2019, the Cave Shepherd Card Services team successfully launched the Cave Shepherd Student Smart Card for young adults ages 18 to 25 who are attending local or international tertiary institutions.  Gail Welch, Business Development Officer stated, “our desire is to assist Barbadian Students through their various life events, including acquiring their first credit product which was uniquely designed with them in mind.  The Cave Shepherd Smart Card is affordable and provides support to help our Cardholders manage credit responsibly.”

She continued, “Cave Shepherd Card Services have embraced digitization as an important feature of our business.   As such, our Student Smart Cardholders will have immediate access to our digital platform through the Cave Shepherd Card Mobile App allowing them to send and receive digital payments, make purchases from the growing list of Cave Shepherd Card Mobile Partners from their homes, dorms, or on the go, track spending and view their balances in real-time.  Our innovation is dynamic, allowing us to create new features within the App that adds value to the lives of all our Cardholder family.”
