See the first and only Black women who owns her own Bank in U.S

One of the top 10 largest Black-owned banks in the United States, First Independence Bank is situated in Detroit and is primarily owned by Kiko Davis.

She is now the sole Black woman bank owner in the nation. In an interview with Rolling Out in 2018,

She claimed that her capacity to actually connect with people and foster a culture of synergy is what distinguishes her as an African American woman leader.

It’s a natural skill that I was given by God, she remarked. When followers believe their leaders care deeply about them and their surroundings, they tend to give their all.

Kiko says that she is greatly inspired by Shirley Chisolm, the first Black congresswoman and the first major-party Black candidate to run for president in 1972.

She says her favorite quote by Chisolm is, “In the end, anti-Black, anti-female, and all forms of discrimination are equivalent to the same thing: anti-humanism.”

She is also inspired by her late husband, Donald Davis. After his untimely death, she created a foundation in his name to perpetuate his legacy-building efforts and initiatives that he envisioned and developed.

According to Kiko, taking chances is crucial if you want to succeed. “She asserts that there cannot be reward without risk.

Your errors will teach you priceless lessons that will eventually become your winning technique.”

She also places a high value on having a positive outlook and credits prayer, a healthy diet, and exercise for her success.
