It was then certified to commence business within the region on 22nd October 1983.
The Bank finds itself in one of the naturally endowed Districts in the Ashanti Region” Amansie West District” of which its name was coined as, Amansie West Rural Bank Limited.
The Bank has successfully changed its name in the records of the Office of the Registrar of Companies (ORC) and the Bank of Ghana from Amansie West Rural Bank Limited to the AMANSIE RURAL BANK PLC which was approved by the Shareholders in 2020.
The idea is to associate the name to all corners and enclaves of AMANSIE without borders. The new Corporate Identity which also include a Logo, Slogan and Colours have also been officially unveiled to the public for recognition in our business relationship.
