As the new school session kicks off, the United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, Africa’s global bank, has announced its highly anticipated “Back2School” package, designed to provide exclusive discounts and benefits for both children and their parents.

Back2School is part of UBA’s commitment to its clients in fostering a seamless educational journey with innovative offerings towards assisting parents in nurturing their children’s educational journey with ease.

Prince Ayewoh, UBA’s head of retail, products and sales explained that the bank recognises the pivotal role that education plays in shaping the future, which is why it developed strategic offerings and entered collaborations to enable families embrace the new school season with enthusiasm and confidence.

“We want our customers – both old and new ones – to know that we are more than just a financial institution, we are a reliable partner in their daily journey. With exclusive discounts and benefits tailored for both children and parents, we aim to alleviate some of the financial burdens associated with every new school season.

This initiative reflects our holistic approach to banking, where we consider not only the financial needs of our customers but also their well-being and aspirations,” he said.

With the UBA ‘Back2School’ package, parents are set to enjoy scholarships, affordable healthcare plans as well as a 13th-month cash reward for their wards when they open and maintain a UBA Kiddies and Teens Accounts with N5,000 for 12 months or N10,000 for six months.

Additionally, the bank is offering a UBA Personal loan, where parents can access up to N30million to enable them give their children and wards the kind of world-class education and life they deserve.
