Tinalet Family wins G50,000 in Access Bank Promotion

Accra- The Access Bank family promotion ‘Abusua Akyedee’ has rewarded winners of its final draw with the TINALET family emerging winners of the grand prize of GH 150,000.

Ernestina Sarfo and Leticia Adjei Twum, who received the cheque for the amount, expressed excitement and commended Access Bank for the innovative reward scheme.

We could not believe it when we were told we won the grand prize, Ms Sarfo said.

Handing over the prizes to the winners at a ceremony held at the forecourt of Access Bank Head Office, Mr Dolapo Ogundinmu, Managing Director Access Bank, said the bank was making significant strides towards achieving its financial inclusion goal of focusing on underserved and unbanked segments of the population, especially the youth.

He said the youth between the ages of 18 and 35 formed a critical aspect of the bank’s strategy to become the leading retail bank in Ghana within the next five years.

We see our youth more financially aware than ever before. They have access to pocket money, use mobile phones, read a wide range of topics online and have payment cards for online shopping, etc. We cannot underestimate their potential, and the need for us to develop tailor made banking solutions to serve their ever changing lifestyle is more important now than before, he said.

It is in this direction, he said, that Access Bank is investing in technology, infrastructure and platforms to serve the youth market.

Recently in Ghana, we rolled out our first digital banking centre on the University of Ghana campus and have ensured that we maintain presence on other tertiary campuses such as the KNUST, UPSA and others.

We have also recognised the need to engage this market both offline and online, and we are as a Bank using our social media platforms to advance our financial inclusion agenda, Mr Ogundinmu said.

He said Access Bank would continue to pay attention to the underserved market to deepen financial inclusion in Ghana to create a more financially aware populace.

Mrs Matilda Asante-Asiedu, Head, Retail Banking Group, Access Bank, said the six months promotion, sought to influence the savings attitude of Ghanaians and promote financial inclusion.

Other winners including SMEs and individuals received prizes, including visa prepaid cards for free shopping, desktop computers and money counting machines as well as a holiday trip to Dubai.

Under the campaign theme ‘Save Today, Take Tomorrow’, Access Bank’s ‘Abusua Akyedee” promo rewarded over 5,000 of the Bank’s customers during the promo period.

The ‘Abusua Akyedee’ promo launched in July was in partnership with the National Lottery Authority (NLA) under the Caritas platform, Auto Plaza, Wapic Insurance and Ghana Life.
