What our staff say

Jana Kadian, CEO, Advans Myanmar

Starting a greenfield microfinance institution with the Advans Group in Myanmar has been a unique opportunity and both an exciting and humbling experience.

My efforts help to create opportunities for people to improve their lives. That is the case both for customers, who gain access to fair financial services, as well as staff, who can build valuable, long-term careers with an institution in which they can take pride, Advans Myanmar.


Vahid Najafzadeh, COO, Advans Pakistan

Advans gives me the freedom to use my skills and experience to their full potential, and to me, that is the biggest value of this company.

At Advans Pakistan, we like to brainstorm about what we need to enhance in order to make our products and services more interesting for staff to sell and for clients to sign up to. My goal is to contribute to building a strong and sustainable bank so that people working here can feel proud of being a part of it.


Marie Pierre N'Guessan, Head of HR, Advans Côte d'Ivoire

My goal is to help Advans CI teams become exemplary models in their respective fields, both at group level and in our industry.

During my time at Advans CI I have been given an increasing amount of responsibility, I have had the opportunity to manage more staff, benefit from the Group's technical support on various HR topics and have periodic exchanges with teams from other affiliates! My goal is to help Advans CI teams become exemplary models in their respective fields, both at group level and in our industry. In addition, I want to boost the level of commitment of our staff, their motivation and the pride of belonging to Advans!


Matthias Bénédic, Operations Officer, Advans International

I started at Advans as a trainee right out of school. The different opportunities to work in the affiliates (Nigeria, Cambodia, and Ghana) have built up my experience.

I chose to work in microfinance because I am convinced of the positive impact that this activity can have on the lives of clients. It is important to me that my work is not limited to the economic sphere but also has a social purpose. In implementing its vision and mission, I think that Advans contributes to the development of its customers, and more generally to the development of countries in which the group operates. Recent work on social performance is another step in this direction.
