Access Bank GMD buys 50 million additional shares

Access Bank’s commitment to deliver banking services to at least one in every two Nigerians has been reaf­firmed as the retail finan­cial institution success­fully commissioned and empowered Access Closa agents across Nigeria with solar powered fibre kiosks to support their business and boost visibility of their locations to provide more than banking services to both existing and new cus­tomers across the nation.

With the current number of Access Closa Agents spread across the 774 local government areas in the country, the bank has signifi­cantly grown access to finance and banking services to millions of previously under-banked, un­banked Nigerians, while provid­ing alternate streams of income for MSMEs, promoting financial literacy, and advancing its ambi­tion to bank one in every two Ni­gerians by 2025.

According to Rob Giles, Se­nior Retail Advisory, Access Bank Group, “The Access Closa network is a bespoke channel through which the bank express­es her passion and commitment to broadening the opportunities and access to financial services for every Nigerian and African, irrespective of the location they might be.

“Customers can locate a Closa agent near them by simply search­ing for ‘Access Closa Agent’ on Google Maps on their phone in­stead of walking long distances in search of a branch.”
