The Project REACh Initiative, standing for Roundtable for Economic Access and Change, encourages meaningful partnerships to assist minority-owned banks to be important financial resources in their communities and a vibrant part of the economic landscape. Agility Bank (in organization) will be the first primarily women-owned and led Minority Depository Institution (MDI) organized for this purpose in the U.S.

“This is truly a unique opportunity to reach deeper into the areas we serve to meet the growing needs of women and all minority business owners,” said Duane Dewey, Trustmark CEO. “Women-owned businesses are growing at twice the rate of all businesses nationwide, and we are committed to supporting this growth.”
