Visa Ghana Targets SMEs In Financial Inclusion Agenda

Wednesday, December 18, 2019

Global payment technology company, Visa, is targeting Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to push its financial inclusion initiatives drive in Ghana.

Country Manager for Visa Ghana, Adoma Preprah, said Visa recognises the important role SMEs play in building an economy, the reason it is focusing on the sector to push its financial inclusion drive.

“Visa’s vision of being the best way to pay and be paid, for everyone, everywhere, is core to our business and consistent with the mission of achieving global financial inclusion. In Ghana, we are focusing our efforts at small and micro-enterprises. Many Ghanaians run businesses to support their families but lack access to formal financial services. Without access to basic financial tools that allow them to build assets in a safe, reliable and affordable way, these businesses are constrained in achieving economic security.

“We know that small businesses build the economy that is why for us a big focus is around building financial expertise for small and medium enterprises,” said Adoma Peprah.
