Access Bank Ghana has held its first SMEs capacity building workshop for the year, in Tamale. It was on the theme "Boosting digital skills for emerging opportunities".
The workshop brought together SMEs from across the Northern Regional capital, to equip them with emerging trends on digitalization for business growth.
Speaking ahead of the workshop, MD of Access Bank Ghana, Olumide Olatunji urged participants to make use of knowledge they would acquire from the workshop. "
"Our world keeps evolving and so should our approach to every business venture. Applying new skills and dynamics of the present business terrain will propel your businesses to growth".
Mr. Olatunji assured SMEs of the Bank's unflinching support to the sector 'Access Bank recognizes the immense contribution SMEs make to Ghana's economic development and so we will continue to support you with knowledge, hands-on training, business advisory services and capital to help your businesses to succeed", he intimated.
Addressing participants at the workshop, Kafui Bimpe, Group Head of Access Bank's Business Banking stressed the Bank's commitment to championing the cause of SMEs in the country.
"Through capacity building on digitalization, access to loans for business expansion, advisory services, and other tailor- made products, we are equipping SMEs to contribute more towards Ghana's economy. Presently, statistics shows that SMEs contribute significantly to Ghana's economy, an apparent reason to support the sector".
He shared the bank's joy, in impacting over 6,000 SMEs in the previous year and hoped to extend these training to all the other regions.
Access Bank seeks to consolidate the gains made in the past year, while equipping more SMEs with knowledge on digitalization to promote their businesses.
The Bank is well positioned to support SMEs and has instituted interventions such as its wide offering on digital banking solutions, international remittance services (AccessAfrica money transfer service) and Instant Business Loan (IBL) specifically targeted at SMEs.
In a bid to ensure continuous education on digitalization for SMEs, Access Bank has sponsored a column on SMEs dubbed SME Focus in the business segment of the Daily Graphic newspaper to go out fortnightly.
The second edition will be out on 4th March 2022. Through constant customer engagement, the Bank gets to understand their varied needs and help to proffer solutions to them.
