As part of events to mark this year’s financial literacy month, Voltic Ghana Limited has hosted some key stakeholders including distributors of the company’s products to educate them on financial literacy.
Over 100 participants made up of retailers, wholesalers and distributors were given some tutorials on credit management, financial reporting, tax identification number (TIN) registration and tax amnesty.
The company also used the opportunity to introduce its new products, which include Campari, Chi products and happy hour to the participants.
In his welcome address, Mr. Daniel Torvinyo, Country Finance Manager for Voltic Ghana, said nurturing and building the capacity of their stakeholders is a key responsibility of the company in line with the demand of their widening brand portfolio.
“The success of every business depends on a lot of critical factors including a solid capital base, quality product or service portfolio, and technology, among others. Arguably, however, one of the most critical factors is the quality and loyalty of the customer and this is why we have decided to spend time with you.”
One of the participants who expressed his appreciation to Voltic for the education said “as a small enterprise owner, the exercise has widened my scope of finance concepts. To have complex terms relayed in most simple form is quite interesting and I must say, the financial operations of my business will definitely change in a positive regard.”
“When a business realizes the need to bring its key distributors closer for such enlightening engagements, they need to be duly applauded. I hope this continues to create the much needed transformation in the business world for a swift boost in our economic state as a country,” one of the distributors also stated.
The event marks part of a month long celebration, which includes a trade visit to interact with customers, Finance Department open day, employee in-house training on finance processes, and savings challenge among other activities.
