Oradian and FIAC partner to deepen financial inclusion in Ghana


The quest of Ghana to reduce the percentage of the unbanked segment of the population, which currently hovers around 75 percent, has received a huge boost.

This comes with a strategic partnership between Oradian, a financial inclusion company serving financial institutions in remote, hard-to-reach communities and the Financial Inclusion Advocacy Centre (FIAC), an international action-oriented microfinance think tank geared toward an exhaustive financial inclusion.

Oradian with a toolset which includes a cloud-based core banking system (CBS) Instafin, struck this important partnership with FIAC in pursuit of one of its core objectives to boost financial inclusion by delivering the tools financial institutions need to reach more clients in hard-to-reach communities.

The partnership is in line with Oradian’s broader goal of building a community of visionary microfinance institutions, microfinance banks and Cooperative Societies in West Africa.

Sharing his thoughts on the relationship with FIAC and the significance to the overall vision of Oradian, Onyeka Adibeli, Oradian Co-founder and Head of Implementation says “This is a strategic partnership for us as a financial technology company. Financial Inclusion Advocacy Centre’s mission of broadening and strengthening financial institutions, especially those in the microfinance sector in Africa, fits perfectly with our own goal to deepen financial inclusion on the continent.”

He further underscores his belief in building the financial ecosystem on the continent through such strategic partnerships adding “Such a partnership affords us an opportunity to leverage on FIAC’s platform and network to reach out to the bigger market.”

As part of the broader engagement drive with key stakeholders in Ghana, Oradian will be hosting a dinner for contributors in the financial services sector, specifically those in the microfinance and rural banks sector.

The dinner will be part of the Second Chapter Conference of the Association of Rural Banks – Central Region. The Chapter is scheduled to take place later in the month of July in Winneba in the Central Region.

The event is designed to bring leaders of financial institutions, regulatory groups, financial inclusion experts, and fintech providers together to network and build business relationships.
