“We have created a franchise called Equity Afya for those who have done medicine. We want to transform and disrupt health in this country to make it affordable, reliable and dependable for all,” Mwangi stated.

Equity Bank aspires to have established more than 150 fully operational clinics by the end of this year.

Furthermore, Equity’s project aligns with the government’s vision for the country’s health system. Mwangi divulged that Equity Afya Clinics will charge 40% fewer fees than all other clinics in the country.

“It’s deliberately intentional. It’s guaranteed quality health because it’s a franchise monitored by Equity Group Foundation and Equity Bank ensures our customers get the best health they can at affordable rates,” he stated.

In essence, the meeting aimed at motivating, encouraging, and preparing students for their national exams.

“This is more of parental mentoring and coaching of our young stars. We have talked at length about the opportunities that they have. Those who get As and A minuses who join Equity Leadership Internship Program immediately start working at Equity Bank until they go to university, they earn Sh40,000 monthly,” he said.
