About African Bank
African Bank was established to deal with the growing need for a bank that can understand the uniquely African needs of clients.
We strive to destroy the prejudice and discrimination that exist in some facets of the banking industry, and make essential financial services available to all those who need it.
We’ve always aimed to embrace our rainbow nation’s diversity, and we always will.
Dedicated to supporting the country
We care for South Africa and its people, and have gone the extra mile to help alleviate issues in the communities we operate in.
While we supply our clients with affordable and reliable services through our banking operations, we also have a number of charity and outreach programs.
These include education programs, sport upliftment programs, and entrepreneurial or business loans that we supply to the community and our customers.
Overcoming adversity, in favour of diversity
As we’ve already mentioned, overcoming challenges in our beloved country has been of paramount importance to us from our inception.
We believe all of South Africa’s citizens deserve equal access to service, and we provide it, even when it comes to helping people with their property finance needs.
We want all our customers to leave knowing they received the friendliest, most sought-after service in finance, and we achieve that through our caring company policy.
By using our services, you help us create the ideal South Africa we envision.
