Fidelity Bank Plc, one of Nigeria’s foremost financial institutions, has been awarded the “SME Friendly Bank of the Year 2017” in recognition of its support for Micro Small Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in the country.

The accolade, bestowed upon Fidelity Bank Plc at the 2017 Lagos Chamber of Commerce & Industry (LCCI) Awards, has been described as a clear testament of the bank’s resolve to raise a new generation of entrepreneurs.

As part of its core mandate of trade promotion and business and policy advocacy, the LCCI recognises deserving corporate organisations, public institutions and individuals that have contributed meaningfully to the development of commerce and industry in different sectors of the Nigerian economy on an annual basis.

Aigbe reiterated the bank’s unflinching commitment to drive economic growth by helping government to reduce its dependence on oil income.

Speaking in the same vein, Senior Business Advisor, Managed SME Division, Fidelity Bank Plc, Isaiah Ndukwe, said that the bank has supported a huge number of customers expand the scope of their business. “Fidelity Bank has always being in the business of helping people grow.
