In August of 1904, the Bank of Benoit was established in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. Since then it has maintained a strong commitment to local service. For over a hundred years that habit of service has been the steady mission of the Bank. In September 2020, the bank was reimagined as Genesis Bank with a goal of remembering who they are as a bank and using that mission of service to expand their reach outside of the Delta.
As the world has gotten faster and technology has gotten smarter, Genesis finds that what has been forgotten are people and their individual stories. People like for their banker to give them a chance to be heard and for their stories and lives to matter.
