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.

Receiving the awards on behalf of the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Fidelity Bank Plc, Nnamdi Okonkwo, the Bank’s Divisional Head, Brand & Communications, Charles Aigbe, thanked LCCI for the recognition, stating that it validates the bank’s efforts at promoting small enterprises. “Medium and Small enterprises are the engine room of any economy thus creating a dedicated SME Banking Division that ensures that we focus on providing solutions to their challenges through a multifaceted approach,” he said.

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. We are extremely happy to be associated with this and it is such a great honour to receive this award,” he stated.
