“But also, on the social side there is the need to contribute its quota in the well-being of people living in communities it operates. The scholarship scheme is one which will not to be truncated anytime soon, so far as they operate in the country,” he said.

The scheme coincided with a health screening which targeted not only clients of the company but the entire community of Lapaz, Darkuman, Nyamekye, Akweteyman, Apenkwa and its environs

The  screening included hepatitis B, eye test, blood pressure, sugar level and malaria prevalence. Meanwhile, the company has set aside US$ 75,000 to support the communities in which it operates and provide support in educational needs.

In attendance was Mr. Dirk Brouwer, CEO, ASA International, who was optimistic about the country’s financial market and their eagerness to expand into newer regions of the country to do business.

The beneficiaries were grateful for the support from the company and assured them of taking their studies seriously to become great leaders in future. ASA is a member of the Ghana Club 100 and was ranked 17th in the industry awards in the year 2016.
