Dr Nii Kotei Dzani, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of IDEAL Finance, a micro finance company, has noted that integrity, commitment and focus are the qualities businessmen need to start-up and not huge sum of capital.
He therefore called on government to stabilise the economy and come up with policies to support indigenous companies rather than assisting foreign businesses at the expense of citizens.
Dr Dzani was speaking at a media interaction at the weekend to launch the fifth anniversary of IDEAL Finance at Ada in the Greater Accra Region.
The objective of the company is to provide a superior customer care to meet the ever changing and diverse financial needs, to serve both loans and investment products at very competitive rates.
The company as part of the anniversary also cut the sod to construct an ultra-modern six- unit classroom block and tree planting exercise for Ada Senior High School, the Alma matter of Dr Dzani.
He said the country’s economy would not be stable if government does not invest into local companies.
Dr Dzani IDEAL Finance would focus on international standards and venture into proper capital investment.
He said the company which is built on strategy and vision acquired Easy Saving and Loans company last year and had since transformed it to First Trust Capital.
Dr Dzani said, the company would strive to keep its dreams afloat to make its balance sheet comparable to HFBC in the next five years.
Naval Captain Kwadjo Butah (Rtd), Board Chairman of the Company, said the launch of the anniversary is as a result of hard work, determination, resilience and the fortitude to keep going even in the face of daunting challenges.
“It is our dream to build a world class institution that can rub shoulders with any financial institutions anywhere in the world.”
Captain Butah said IDEAL Finance which is the first born of the IDEAL Group has led the way for other companies such as IDEAL Capital Partners, First Trust Savings and Loans and Ideal Trade.
He said the company has gone through a great transition within the five years of its existence and its performance in the financial industry has been exemplary.
