Access for Women

It’s time Africa’s women had access

At Access Bank, we understand that the future is female. And we’ve put that understanding into action.

Access Bank has consistently won awards for sustainability in which gender (specifically women) has been integral.

We understand that empowering women empowers our continent. Creating a platform that enables women to connect with themselves not only addresses women-focused issues, but wider societal challenges too. That’s why mentorship, coaching and support for women entrepreneurs, women in established business roles, or women looking after families, translates into positive change for the wider community. Because community is second nature to women.
