Offa, Iseyin get new cahsless centres
To create more efficient and agile branches that are closer to the financially excluded members of the society, Advans Nigeria has launched two new cashless centres in Offa, Kwara State and Iseyin, Oyo State.
The agile branches bring the number of Advans cashless centres serving hundreds of financially underserved in Nigeria to three and a total of 17 branches.
According to the MD/CEO, Gaetan Debuchy, the expansion is one of the company’s innovative approaches to providing seamless, affordable and transparent financial services to micro, small and medium scale enterprises (MSMEs) in Nigeria.
“It will help us as a bank to make more impact with less resources so as not to increase the cost of service to clients,” he said.
He added that Advans is a model microfinance institution that has continued to promote private sector-led economic and social development in Nigeria and nine other countries.
Speaking on where these cashless branches are situated, the Chief of Business & Strategy, Elvis Oheneba said that factors like proximity to small businesses and convenience for individuals and business owners were put into consideration, adding that the bank “intends to increase the number of cashless branches from three to six by the end of the year”.
The DCEO, who also oversees the business activities for the Bank network across Nigeria, Jean-Luc Nzoubou, explained that ‘a cashless centre’ can do everything a full branch can do.
“Customers can apply for loans, open savings and current accounts, get access to business advisory, and also carry out other transactions without having to travel long distances,” he said.
