The Capital Bank in partnership with MBM Associates and Revo Education has launched the Young Achiever Account which seeks to provide financial security for children from birth to age 17 by promoting savings culture.
It comes with the gift of an i-learn tablet to clients who deposit GH¢5,000 or more and have an opening balance of GH¢10 and operating balance of GH¢100.
The child friendly i-learn tablet which had been given out to the first three depositors has been configured with 42 textbooks approved by the Ghana Education Service as well as past questions and answers from junior high to senior high schools.
Launching the account, the Managing Director of Capital Bank, Reverend Fitzgerald Odonkor said parents would also receive up to 10 per cent discounts on books purchased at any Sytris bookshop and up to 15 per cent on football and swimming programmes at Lizzy Sports Complex.
He said the Young Achiever Account was a social initiative aimed at helping families to actualise their dreams which would otherwise have been shattered due to a lack of financial security.
Rev Fitzgerald pointed out that “the journey toward financial liberation” was linked to strategic planning and discipline and called on parents to invest in their children’s future by taking advantage of the account.
He said the pursuit for superior value and the desire of the bank to provide holistic financial solutions across every facet of customer’s life cycle was the motivation behind the development of the account.
Kevin Baffoe Saffee of i-learn said the tablet has been configured to work without much internet connectivity and with safeguard to allow it to be used purposefully for education and learning.
MBM Associates are marketers of the i-learn tablets and Reve Education being the developers of the i-learn.
