According to him, in order to deliver on its promise to continually give customers more, the bank developed the efficient digital lending platform which will make loan application more convenient with flexible collateral, favourable interest rates, application tracking, robust customer service and much more.
“We have been focused on providing solutions targeted at boosting the economy because we believe it is our responsibility to contribute to the stimulation of economic growth. With the launch of Cashflow Loans by Access, we are renewing our commitment to providing the much needed financial support to SMEs,” Etuokwu said.
