During only over 6 months of 2017 Credit Agricole Bank has issued UAH 1 billion of car loans and thus surpassed its own last year record and fully positioned as an absolute leader of car loan market yet again. In 2016 the Bank managed to reach the same amount of car loans in November.
Credit Agricole Bank could not leave this event unnoticed and therefore will continue the last year tradition of thanking to its customers for confidence and loyalty. So the customer, whose loan was the «billionth» one in the portfolio of Credit Agricole Bank in 2017, received a special gift – 1 ton of fuel.
The recipient of «Fuel for a year» gift, 1000 liters of petrol, was Plam Yevhen Ihorovych who fled loan application on 12 July 2017 and a day after when his loan was issued it turned to be the «billionth» one. A Toyota car that favored its proud owner with petrol for a year was bought in «Motor-Olvi» Toyota Centre in Kropyvnytskyi.
Credit Agricole Bank appreciates the choice of its customers and exerts every effort to make the cooperation mutually profitable and long-lasting.
«We are proud of having leading position in Ukrainian car loan market and seek to befit the leader status by offering products with the best terms as well as the highest services level to our customers. In 2016 the amount of car loans issued by Credit Agricole Bank reached UAH 1.3 billion,» says Galyna Zhukova, the Management Board Member of Credit Agricole Bank in charge of retail business, network and digital. «Today we celebrate the first and hopefully not the last «billionth» car loan in this year!»
Position of leadership in car lending is the result of continuous work towards that end. Back in 2007, Credit Agricole Bank was among the first banks in Ukrainian market to actively develop car lending to private individuals. Within the last few years the bank has been stoutly securing leading positions in this area possessing 50% share of Ukrainian market. This is confirmed by numerous awards in «Car loans» categories in public ratings, more than 50 thousands of satisfied customers, as well as partnership with more than 400 car dealerships and leading car manufacturers.
«Credit Agricole Bank managed to achieve such a record level due to a comprehensive approach, i.e. an experienced team that is well acquainted with the market, transparent lending terms, simplicity, quality and safety of the product, the best interest rates fixed for the whole loan period, and long-term cooperation with car dealers», says Roman Bunich, director of department of sales via alternative channels and partners of Credit Agricole Bank.
Since 2008 Credit Agricole Bank has been rapidly developing partnership programs with car manufacturers and thus can offer special lending terms and profitable loan programs allowing its customers to buy cars, auto parts and accessories, services, and maintenance. The bank currently cooperates with over 400 car dealerships and manufacturers including Renault, Nissan, Toyota, Lexus, Peugeot, Citroen, Infiniti and other well-known car brands.
Quality management system of car lending by Credit Agricole Bank is ensured at the level that meets international standard, which is confirmed by ISO 9001 certificate in the area of «Car Loans». It should be mentioned that Credit Agricole Bank is the only bank in Ukraine that has been issued such certificate and therefore can guaranty transparency of the service to the customers.
