The “W” is not a product, rather it is a blend of existing banking products and services bundled to effectively meet the present-day financial and lifestyle needs of women in identified sub-segments, as well as provide them with a complete and rewarding banking experience. The W, based on peculiarities and lifestyle classification, is segmented into the following;

  • Young Professional
  • W and Family
  • W in business
  • MHSS – Maternal Health Service Support

This year, the program is being extended to 6 other African countries where Access Bank’s W initiative has its presence.

These countries are Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda, Zambia, Sierra-Leone, Gambia and Congo hence the tag name “Womenpreneur Pitch-A-Ton Africa.
