As part of its branch expansion strategy to bring its services closer to customers, Access Bank has opened an ultra-modern branch in the business district of Bolgatanga.
The Bolga branch brings the bank’s business locations to a total of 45, across the country.
This forms part of the bank’s financial inclusion strategy to reach the under-served and unbanked segments of the market in all the regions, an official statement.
A statement issued by Nana Adu Kyeremateng, the Head of Corporate Communications of Access Bank, said in serving the financial needs of the surrounding communities within the municipality, the branch would offer the bank’s full range of business and retail banking products.
Other services available to customers are bills payment, e-banking and card services, domestic and international money transfer through Western Union, RIA, Moneygram and Access Bank’s Cross Border Money Transfer.
Mr Stephen Abban, the Group Head of Personal Banking at the bank, according to the statement, said at the ceremony that the bank’s aim was to bring banking services closer to its customers, whether it was through digital channels or brick and mortar.
“Our branch in Tamale has been serving the northern sector for some time now and as a result of the feedback from customers, there is the need to branch out further,” he explained.
“The Bolga branch we believe will make it easier for our customers and the public to transact business with the bank without having to travel long distances.”
Mr. Abban said the bank continuously empowered its customers to cultivate the habit of saving towards their future.
He said one of its permanent pro-savings strategy was the “Change Your Level” promotion.
Launched in September last year, the promotion, he said, gave customers an opportunity to save and stand a chance to win many prizes, including an ultra-modern three-bedroom house.
Both existing and new customers stood a chance to win by depositing GH¢200.00 and maintaining multiples of GH¢500 to qualify for two mini draws and the grand draw, he said.
