MicroLead in Ghana: Sinapi Aba’s Launch of Savings Products Brings Key Changes and Lessons

The transformation of Sinapi Aba Trust into a deposit-taking financial institution was a pivotal moment in its history. Due to the financial institution’s extensive footprint across Ghana– reaching all ten regions and over 130,000 clients– the process required substantial changes to the organization’s business model and culture. This transition is the focus of the MicroLead project established in partnership between UNCDF, Sinapi Aba, and Opportunity International, and provides a myriad of lessons to draw upon. Sinapi Aba, a financial service provider in Ghana, was founded in 1994.

Jessica investigates: £15,000 beyond reach in Post Office's 'instant access' account

After I contacted Post Office Limited it apologised for the delays in providing the facility to withdraw funds from your Instant Saver account. It was then set up so you had access to your funds and £100 was offered. You did not think this was adequate and provided documentary proof about the opportunities you had lost because of the mix-up. Meanwhile, you received statements showing the account as having been opened more than two months after the application form and documents had been handed over the counter.

Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs)

Home »Tax planning guide »Section 2 – Individuals »Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs) An RESP is a type of trust through which you can save for a child’s education. If you make contributions to such a plan, the amounts are not tax deductible, but the major advantage is that earnings accumulate on a tax-deferred basis. Also, when the funds are finally paid out to the child, the accumulated income earned in the plan (such as dividends or interest) is taxed in your child’s hands at his or her lower tax rate. RESPs are often set up as family plans.
