Over the years, we have provided sustainable tools for women to Access true financial inclusion and growth. The “W’ initiative is continuously making a difference.SEE HOW
In July 2014, Access Bank unveiled the “W” initiative to accelerate a new and stronger
wave of hitherto scanty female entrepreneurs in Nigeria. In addition to financial inclusion
and liberation, the “W” initiative is a one-stop center of all Access Bank’s women
empowerment offerings. Some of these include capacity building programs, mentoring
programmes, and maternal health services, all aimed at helping to build a bigger,
stronger and more sustainable society.
Under the “W” initiative, participating women and their families have access to a wide
range of opportunities. These opportunities include access to loans and credit facilities;
access to the “W” community in which they can get insights concerning managing
finance and increasing productivity. The “W” community also provides women with
access to information about several value-adding special offers for the home, specially
discounted offers and freebies on health, beauty and fitness.
The “W” initiative hosts our maternal health support scheme(MHSS), through which
Access bank supports local and international treatments for fertility, antenatal and
postnatal treatment, and other special procedures such as hysterectomy (uterus removal),myomectomy (fibroid removal), dental, bariatric and orthopaedic treatments. Women can access the MHS Scheme within 48 hours.
“W” is all about raising, grooming and sustaining – in our communities – a continuing
generation of women that are inspired, healthy, connected and empowered. It is Access
Bank’s commitment to banking women.
All of these exciting initiatives are hosted on the “W” initiative website,
www.thewcommunity.com, an online community for Access women.
