Axcel Finance commenced operations in St. Lucia in May 2012 with offices on the 1st Floor of the Blue Coral Mall in downtown Castries. The company sees this expansion to the South of the island as an important part of fulfilling its goal of providing all Saint Lucians access to financing at a time when this is not easily available from traditional financial institutions.
Axcel Finance has engaged in several people-oriented initiatives in St. Lucia, which have and continue to make a difference in the lives of our people and our communities. These include a Career Preparation Workshop for secondary and tertiary level students, an NGO Management Workshop, the Axcel Mentorship Programme, Axcel Angels in the community, as well as donations to schools and community-based organizations.
