In August 2018, Advans Ghana announced the beginning of the celebrations for its 10 years of operations in Ghana with an anniversary health walk. The company was licensed by the Bank of Ghana in October 2008 and has remained committed to providing adapted financial services to Ghanaian small businesses. Since the launch of operations, Advans has served thousands of customers in 19 points of sales across seven regions of Ghana. The anniversary celebration also coincides with Advans rebranding and new logo launch, which started began in July in Ghana and will be ongoing in the next few months.
The 10th anniversary health walk, which aimed to promote physical exercise and team work, brought together all staff members of Advans Ghana and passed through the principal streets of Accra, Tamale, Kumasi, Sunyani, Koforidua and Hohoe. The walk and speeches were followed by dancing and Jama songs. Other activities planned for the 10th anniversary include various corporate social responsibility actions, a customer service week in the first week of October, the holding of the Advans Group Sub-Saharan African board meetings in Accra, a dinner for staff and clients, an awards night and a thanksgiving service among others.
Speaking at the end of the health walk, Mr Francis Owiredu, the Deputy Chief Executive Officer said “Over the years, Advans has supported the growth of entrepreneurs and businesses in Ghana with its financial products and services that are tailored to their needs. We aim to continue to do so for many years to come.
