A wholly-owned Ghanaian company Quick Credit managed fully by Ghanaians currently employs close to 1,500 Ghanaians, and serves 200,000 Ghanaian small and micro businesses nationwide.
Also, the company has always been on a path of growth year-on-year over the past years, since they have worked together as a unit, developed and believed in principles that work only for the company.
This was disclosed by the Founder and Board Chairman of Quick Credit, Richard Nii Armah Quaye during the company’s 2002 and 13th Edition of the annual Quick Credit and Quick Angels End of Year Party and Dinner held at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).
Richard Nii Armah Quaye is also the Board Chairman of Quick Angels.
This auspicious gathering was on the theme “Empowering livelihoods and consolidating our gains amidst economic challenges -the role of the employee in 2022.”
According to him, Quick Credit has chalked remarkable feats that have only been made possible due to the relentless sacrifices made by both management and staff of the company.
Quick Angels is Ghana’s first angel investor that is currently supporting hundreds of businesses, startups, and entrepreneurs with equity financing across Ghana and beyond.
Quick Angels has successfully built over 25 world-class brands such as burger king, Doughman foods, Sankofa natural spices, Coli network, Benjie, and duke rice, ridge medical center, and many more in Ghana and other parts of Africa employing over 3000 direct staff across brands only in Ghana.
Touching on the year 2022, which he observed was one of the most challenging years after the Covid pandemic and its accompanied global financial crisis, he said:
“This year has been very challenging for our economy, businesses, employees, and everyone in the country. This happened because our currency collapsed and led to higher inflation of goods and services and the depreciation of our local currency.
We grew as a company during the times of COVID and the times of financial crisis that faced the industry, and this is only because we believe in differentiating ourselves from the competition and focusing on the fundamental yet very important and critical things that make us great and strong.”
He was full of praises for the management and staff who have made this massive progress a dream come true.
