Former African Footballer of the year, Abedi Pele, on Friday laid claim ownership of Ghana’s biggest microfinance bank.
According to the Ghana football legend, he owns Izwe Savings & Loans, a microfinance company that has been in existence since 2011.
Reports said that the three-time African Footballer of the year has managed to keep a tight lid on the news despite the fact that the company operated its head office right inside the his Maestro Plaza located at Kotobabi, Accra.
Ghanaweb reported that the former Black Stars captain who has never talked about his investments in other businesses aside from Nania FC, the football club he manages, made the revelation in an interview.
“I have done so many things but my character is very calm, I am always in the dark and I believe in that,” Abedi Pele told the French Ambassador to Ghana, Anne Sophie Avé in an interview.
“I have been in the country working very hard, I have a microfinance company which is very huge and number one in the country called Izwe Loans.”
“We give loans to teachers, military, police to support them in their daily lives. They have to send their children to school and so we give them these loans to manage and buy things for their children.”
Pele who is the father of Swansea’s Andre Ayew and Crystal Palace’s Jordan Ayew, further revealed that he has investment plans for the Northern Region which would take off this year.
