Access Bank Plc. has said that it has won the GBA Women's Market Champion Impact Award for providing opportunities for women, according to an online report.

The award was organised by the Global Banking Alliance for Women in Paris. Herbert Wigwe, the group managing director, Access Bank, said 'For sustainable development, women empowerment, including support to improve their socio-economic status, remains a practical, highly-important endeavour.'

'Over the years, Access Bank has enshrined women empowerment into its corporate ethos, the recognition by a prestigious body such as the Financial Alliance for Women and the testimonials of our beneficiaries highlight the success of the bank in this area. Furthermore, we promise to intensify our efforts to build capacity and support women globally with the resources and expertise needed to improve their lives,' Wigwe added.

Access Bank, which has over 35 percent women in its growing customer base, has offered innovative solutions and unique products. These include the W Power Loan, a discount offering that gives loans to female-owned businesses, and the W Academy, where networking and capacity-building programmes are held for women.

The bank had earlier received the National Women in Finance Magazine's Outstanding Banking Initiative Awards; the Global Banking Alliance (GBA) Women's Market Champion Award and CBN Excellence in Women Economic Empowerment Award, among several others.
