Promoting sustainable economic growth and reducing poverty in Ghana.




 Through the concept of cooperation among cooperators, Yaa Asantewaa Rural bank provides communities with the opportunity to set up and own their local financial institution with the view to promoting the local economy through mobilisation of resources from the local environment.


We are building the next generation of Village Banking institutions (VBI):

  • Helping communities set up their own VBIs and expand their products and services to address their clients’ full range of needs;

  • Focusing on rural, peri-urban areas which are under-served communities and villages through village banking services and products;

  • We are pushing the frontiers of financial inclusion beyond microfinance;

  • Accelerating the development of new business models, technologies and channels; and Providing seed funding and assistance for promising start-ups and adjacent technologies through impact investment initiatives;

  • We are helping to build a strong financial inclusion industry with high standards and broad engagement;

  • Redoubling industry commitment to consumer protection through the Smart Campaign;

  • Providing platforms for industry collaboration, through community meeting with opinion leaders, traditional rulers and other socio-economic working groups and individuals in the communities we operates;
