    What you should know

    The new partnership further signifies Access Holding’s drive to have its footprints across major economies and regions in the continent.

    Last week, the financial services behemoth announced the agreement to acquire the entire share capital National Bank of Kenya from KCB through its leading subsidiary, Access Bank. Over time, the group has built a reputation for successfully utilizing mergers and acquisitions to expand its service offerings.

    Following its success in Kenya and East Africa, M-Pesa will be looking to establish a foothold in Africa’s biggest economy- Nigeria and the West African region in general where it has struggled to make a mark.
