KBA admits Caritas Microfinance Bank to the Association

NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 24 – Kenya Bankers Association has announced that Caritas Microfinance Bank has joined its membership, bringing its total membership to 47 banks.

Licensed and regulated by the Central Bank of Kenya, Caritas was founded by the Catholic Archdiocese of Nairobi and launched in June 2015 as a deposit taking microfinance institution.

In describing the bank, KBA CEO Dr. Habil Olaka says the bank has grown to become a leading microfinance bank, offering a range of services, including current and savings accounts, term loans and asset finance, LPO finance and foreign exchange solutions.

“KBA is delighted to have Caritas join the Association and we are confident the bank will contribute to our long-term vision of reinforcing the industry’s role in advancing Kenya’s sustainable economic development,” said Olaka.

In 2013, KBA amended its constitution to broaden its base to incorporate other institutions, including deposit taking microfinance institutions and the representative offices of foreign based banks.

Since then, Kenya Post Office Savings Bank, KWFT, Faulu and Rafiki microfinance banks have joined the Association.
