Ghana: Bayport hosts customers and partners to dinner

Bayport Savings and Loans Plc marked its 20th anniversary with a celebratory dinner and awards ceremony in Accra, honoring customers, partners, and recognizing long-serving staff.

The occasion also provided an opportunity to contemplate the company’s legacy of providing smooth payroll lending services to government workers and offering comprehensive savings and investment solutions across the nation.

Mr. Akwasi Aboagye, the CEO of Bayport Savings and Loans, highlighted in his brief address to shareholders and partners that the company’s sustained growth is rooted in strong corporate values, emphasizing transparency, integrity, customer service, risk management, and ethics during its evolution and digital transition.

The CEO of Bayport Financial Services, Africa, Nothando Ndebele, in her brief remarks, applauded the leadership, staff, and partners of the company for steering the growth of the business in a rather uncertain financial environment. A founding member of the company, Mr. Kwame Pianim, shared his excitement and optimism about the continual growth of the company over the past two decades, saying, “It’s very refreshing and rewarding when you are part of something that succeeds. I wish you 20 more years of success.”

Bayport marked its 20th-anniversary celebrations with several community impact activities, including financial literacy workshops in selected senior high schools across the country. The company also donated 200 dual desks to the Bolgatanga Model Preparatory Primary School in the Upper East Region and Nsein Methodist Primary School in the Western Region as part of efforts to promote conducive learning in both schools.

As part of their corporate social responsibility, the company’s staff engaged in voluntary humanitarian efforts to assist underprivileged children at the Haven of Hope Foundation in Medie, Nsawam, and the Nectar Foundation in Krobo Odumase, Eastern Region. Their contributions included the donation of 30 laptops and essential supplies to both institutions. Additionally, Joshua Doku Korley, a student at the Nectar Foundation, was awarded a full scholarship by Bayport, covering his four-year tertiary education in technology.

Some long-serving staff who have worked for the company for between 15 to 20 years respectively were duly recognized and rewarded for their commitment and contributions to the growth of the business over the past two decades.

Bayport’s mission is to facilitate the dreams of ordinary Ghanaians, and it has grown significantly since its foundation in 2003. The company serves over 180,000 customers across the country, providing funds for various life needs, such as education and healthcare. The company is highlighted as Ghana’s leading government employee payroll lender with over a 20 percent market share.”
