Francis Buabeng, a customer at the Sefwi Wiawso Branch of Access Bank Ghana, yesterday emerged the overall winner in the grand draw of the ?Easy Access Promo.?

Dolapo Ogundimu, Managing Director of Access Bank Ghana, at a colourful ceremony in Accra, presented the keys to the sleek Hyundai i35 car to the ultimate winner.

The elated and surprised winner, also known as Nana katakyie Afful II, Benkumhene of the Sefwi Bekwai Traditional Area, could not hide his excitement as he showered praises on the bank.

He opened a personal account in October and operated a business account for more than a year with the bank.

?I had no idea that I had entered into the Easy Access Promo even though I received notification on my phone with an electronic voucher. I didn?t believe in lottery and never paid attention to the messages I received on my phone. So I was pleasantly surprised when I received a call last week that I had won the ultimate prize. I had to quickly call my manager and ask him when I could pick up the car, this is truly fantastic.

Mr Buabeng joined other 39 winners in the grand draw who took away exciting prizes including generator sets, LED Tvs, smartphones, DVD players and lots of other prizes.

This brings to 100 the total number of lucky customers rewarded in the ?Easy Access? Promo in the grand draw and two mini-draws held in Tamale and Kumasi.

Presenting the keys to the car, Mr Ogundimu noted that ?the Easy Access Promo had lived up to its promise of promoting financial inclusion and deepening the savings culture in Ghana by rewarding loyal customers for their patronage.

According to him, Access Bank will leverage on its new business and personal banking strategies to inject freshness and satisfaction in the retail and SME market space in 2014.

?SMEs constitute about 70 percent of the enterprises in Ghana and part of our plan is to give them entrepreneurial and managerial skills set to ensure that they grow their businesses in such a way as to contribute to the larger Ghanaian economy. We also want to improve the economic fortunes of women through our gender empowerment model. We will single out women entrepreneurs for support to help create wealth.
