The corporate mission of AccessBank is to provide micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and the general lower/middle income clientele of Tanzania with a broad range of appropriate financial services. Our products have been designed to meet the needs of our clients – they are simple to understand, easy and fast to access, with minimal fixed costs and full transparency on pricing.
Although AccessBank is still a young bank, we have already evolved into one of the recognized and preferred financiers of MSMEs in the greater Dar es Salaam area. We do not aim to become one of the largest banks in the country but we do aim to set industry standards in terms of customer service, speed and efficiency.
The Bank has been founded by a group of reputable international shareholders committed to the task of improving access to financial services in the country. It is part of the AccessBank Group, a globally expanding network of commercial banks with special focus on microfinance, with holding headquarters in Berlin / Germany. Other affiliates within the group are based in various other African and none African countries including Madagascar, Nigeria, Liberia, Zambia, Azerbaijan and Tajikistan.
