MicroEnsure pays claims to Advans Ghana client
Patience Sarkodie is a 40 year old business woman who trades in Surgical Products and Laboratory Equipments.
She borrowed an amount of GHS 10,000.00 (USD 2,632.00) from the Atonsu Branch in order to re-stock her shop.
Patience was travelling one evening when the bus in which she was travelling and two others were attacked by eleven (11) men armed with knives, machetes and rifles. These armed men blocked a section of the road and the drivers of these buses were forced to stop the buses. The armed robbers went on to rob the passengers of these buses at gunpoint and also beat up some of them including Patience.
As a result of the beating Patience received at the hands of the robbers, Patience sustained severe injuries and was admitted in the hospital where she spent close to thirty days.
Upon submission of complete documents, three (3) months of Patience’s loan installments (principal plus interest) amounting to GHS1, 500.00 (USD 395.00) was paid to Advans Ghana to make up for the time Patience spent in the hospital.
When asked what she thought of insurance before this claim, Patience said “it is always difficult making a claim. This was a totally different experience.” She expressed her profound gratitude to Advans Ghana Savings and Loans.
Kwaku Owusu Nkwantabisa Enterprise
I trust Advans because they offer quick and easy services and have a large network of branches in many countries
Kwaku Owusu Nkwantabisa needed a bank he could rely on. He sells electronics in Darkuman, Accra, and to acquire stock must pay 30,000 pounds to ship three containers of goods from London a few times a year. He has a contract with the container company, and doesn’t want to find himself short of the funds he needs, because that could jeopardize his side of the agreement.
“Advans is very good” he says. “If you need a loan approved fast, they can do it.” A friend and fellow business owner introduced him to Advans in 2012, and he’s been a customer ever since. Kwaku likes the stability of the company “Advans has such a large network of branches in many countries, and the fact that they have been able to expand like they have is a good sign.”
