Family Bank expanded its branch network to 92 across 37 counties
with the opening of a new branch in Eastleigh, bringing its services
closer to one of the country’s fastest-growing business hubs.
“Eastleigh has been a key strategic focus for our business and today
marks the official opening of Family Bank Eastleigh branch, our 92nd
branch countrywide. Eastleigh hosts various micro, small and medium-
sized businesses that are a key driver to the Country’s economic
recovery during this pandemic. As a Bank, we continue to offer value
beyond banking services and cushion MSMEs as we seek to build
sustainable businesses and fuel the growth of the economy,” said Family
Bank CEO Rebecca Mbithi.
Speaking during the launch Family Bank Chairman Dr. Wilfred Kiboro
assured the business community of Family Bank’s support during this
economy recovery period.
“We are a bank that listens to the needs of our diverse customers and
as the business community here in Eastleigh recovers from the broken
supply chain as a result of COVID-19 pandemic, we assure you of our
support through our differentiated customer experience, “said Dr.
Family Bank Eastleigh seeks to serve a diverse customer segment of
micro, small and medium-sized businesses operating in Eastleigh which
is said to have the highest density of traders second to the Nairobi
Central Business District.
“One of our sources of growth as a constituency come from investors
like Family Bank. This is a true testament of the private sector
empowerment needed by providing local jobs and creating wealth. We are
committed to not only support Family Bank but also support the business
community in Kamukunji Constituency,” said The Member of Parliament for
Kamukunji Constituency Hon. Yusuf Hassan Abdi.
This expansion comes after Family Bank recently opened its 91st branch
in Wangige. Those present at the opening ceremony include opinion
